Corruption has it's consequences
on 14 November 2013
I'll be honest and say that I really didn't think I was going to like this, just another American super spy takes on the world sort of book but what the hell, it was a chance to write a review about how predictable and 'average' it was.
Well, OK, I was wrong. For once the Americans weren't saving the world and the CIA weren't gods. I really felt that there was more truth in this novel than we usually get and the 'possibles' herein made this thriller not only thrilling but also frightening.This was not so much a book of black and white as a moral rainbow.
I loved that the three central characters were flawed and that they made there own journeys through the book.I get feeling that some of them will be back. I liked the way the author dealt with the faith issues and, in my opinion, had a real handle on the politicalization and corruption of the Catholic church.
I don't think I've ever read a high octane thriller that made me consider morality quite so much.
