5.0 out of 5 stars Tense, riveting and thoroughly enjoyable., 2 Jun 2013

This review is from: Glass Tiger (Kindle Edition)
More than once I was reminded of "The Day of the Jackal" when reading this very engaging novel. The plot, the prose, the character development are all first class and whilst a government conspiracy plotline is all the rage, this book treats it with flair and panache. I had not heard of Joe Gores prior to reading this book but will definitely be on the lookout for his other books as they are definitely something to lose yourself in. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing read - however..., 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book starts well and right up until the last few chapters is a thoroughly engaging and absorbing read. However the end is somewhat anticlimactic. There is a political message to this novel which is delicately woven into the fabric of the story but it is then spoiled by what can only be described as taking a sledgehammer to break a walnut in order to deliver the main political point. The ending seems very short, almost as if the author had run out of pages, and so for me turns a really good story into just an average read.
