The main problem that I had with this book was that it wasn’t very well copy edited. There were quite a few typos scattered throughout it, and some of the writing was clunky in places – I think it could do with a little further tweaking.
That said, the story was pretty good, although it was also occasionally difficult to believe, and as it’s the start of a series, one can assume that it will only get better. This is the author’s debut novel, and I suppose in some ways it shows. It’s not that it was bad, it just wasn’t particularly good.
That said, if you enjoy tales of international espionage, this could well be the book for you. The author has at least done his research, and you can’t fault him on the facts – it’s clear that a lot of effort has gone into this, and so it’s a shame that the finished project isn’t necessarily as polished as it could be.
