This is an
excellent spy thriller. Even more so, it is an interesting
look at character building. The author does not hold back on
his anti-war feelings, as he has been very outspoken regarding U.S.
and British foreign policy recently. However, he has created a
masterpiece with this book and many have called this his best one
yet! Don't miss out on reading this book!
