- Author Jeffrey Archer
A very serviceable thriller from Jeffrey Archer, but not a particularly memorable or classic work, I think. The story follows the journey of a CIA assassin, who finds himself on the wrong side of the company he works for just months before his retirement. It took a long time to get going, but I stuck with it, and was glad I did because it was an interesting story.
Some of the twists and turns and double crossing was a bit hard to keep track of, but ultimately the story came to a satisfying conclusion (also one that was telegraphed a mile off!) Fans of Archer will enjoy this, but I don’t think it would convince anyone who wasn’t already on board.
