So, I read another of Jeffrey Archer’s work. And I wanted to start reviewing the books that I read. More out of the need to remember them! So, here it goes…
The book had a typical Jerry Archer flavour. Politics, diplomacy, spying and crime. There was also some action. The characters were nicely etched. The plot was tight for most parts save for some loose ends. The pace was initially slow but picked up soon.
Negatives: too many twists and turns. Some of them very unnecessary and some very predictable. Especially the one at the climax. It also rendered many of the plot lines moot.
But, overall, was a decent read. Kept me hooked. I’d rate 3 out of 5.
