I thought I was finished with spy novels and decided on the spur of the moment to give this one a try. Once I picked the book up I could not put it down. I set a personal record in reading this incredible story, great spy mystery kept me wanting more. I will definitely keep this author amongst my favourites, has me hooked on spy novels again.

This book was extremely wordy. Author could have said in 200-250 pages what he said in over 500 pages, it would have been a better book. I got lost several times and I believe the author did, also. Like Greaney but think this book need a stronger edit.

The book was good once you waded through the excessive filler which I eventually skipped over mostly !

Greaney would have had a better read if he left out the 100 pages of filler. The story carries itself without the filler. I hope he's not loading it to satisfy his publisher.
