This book is definitely an intriguing spy thriller that had me guessing until the very end. Once I started reading it I could not put it down until I finished it in its entirety. There is plenty of action to keep you reading at a fast pace with characters bouncing around the world. The book also has a good perspective about our current political climate and how it relates to historical periods. One of the few issues I had was the feeling I was missing some background about some of the characters in the beginning of the book. As this is the first book I read from the author I am not sure if there were previous books that would have provided more information. Overall was a great read and I would highly recommend it!
