There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Of course the players have changed since my previous foray into the genre (over a decade or two ago). We're no longer dealing with the Russians or Eastern Europe. It all kinda comes down to Iran and Iraq and the Middle East.
The novel was well-paced and I was keen to understand who was after the assassins and why, expecting a few twists and turns.
And I really enjoyed the characters, though probably liked a couple of the secondary characters (CIA agent Tucker Anderson and assassin, The Carnivore) as much as Eva and Judd - and feel relieved they obviously featured in The Book of Spies and will undoubtedly appear in the next in the series.

Started out with promise but the plot soon became ridiculous, with more assassins than anyone could ever need, all trying to be interesting by making life for themselves far more complicated than necessary just to try to be interesting. It didn't work.
