This is the first part of a series of three books and it’s a good start for lovers of the genre. It’s very clearly indicated that only Part 1 is free and this is an excellent marketing tool so why some researchers express petulance about having to pay for the other two is beyond my comprehension, especially when Part 1 is such a good read in itself.
If you’ve ever worked in an office job, as I have, you’ll relate to the description of boring paperwork, the significance of which is not lost as a plot point. Apparently, even work as a secret service agent is not without its tedious bureaucracy and is not all James Bond heroics.
In general, the book’s language is satisfactorily tense, as the genre requires, although in places it could have been more succinct. This is a small niggle, however, in my overall opinion of the book, which is that it is a good read which will have you gripped right up to the cliffhanger ending. It will have you panting to read the other two parts so, well done, Mike; you’ve cracked it!
