Rating: 4 – a good historical fiction spy book.
Opinion: This was a good book. It took me a little bit to get into the book, but I ended up really liking it. There are so many characters introduced at first and they all have their code names so it took me a little bit to put all of the names and code names together. There’s also lots of backstory to get through, too. But it’s all important to why the characters act throughout the rest of the story. Once the story gets going, it becomes really good. The author does a good job keeping the mystery going and adding clues if you know where to look. The one thing I didn’t love was the point of view changes. I don’t mind when the points of view change in the middle of a chapter but I didn’t love how the story moved forward from their point of view. Overall I really enjoyed this book. It really makes your pay attention and think. I recommend this book for anyone who loves spy novels.
