review 1: Not a bad thriller, which had me turning the pages which is of course the main aim. The plot revolves around Amelia Levene , who just about to be appointed C in MI6 disapears, rogue agent Tom Kell is asked to find her and so the thriller starts. My only reservation was Kell's spe...

review 1: 400 pages of class A spy-fiction! A clever novel, even though there is no major plot-twist, and the author leaves no surprises for the last 20 chapters, but it's still a very solid work. Maybe not a masterpiece, but if you're a fan of the genre, then this novel is a must-read. Th...

review 1: This was a pretty excellent book. It was very exciting and managed to keep the tension going even through some of the slower parts. I really enjoyed this book because by the end, Sam Gaddis is not some super spy like Jason Bourne, he is just a college professor caught up in extra...
