50's Spy story., 21 Jan 2013
A well written spy story set in the 50's. A lot of back ground infomation re the political situation at the time relevant to the storyline. Characters are down to earth and "real". Am becoming accustomed to the high tech approach of modern day stories especially spy ones, and this is a low tech story - not a mobile phone is sight!! - and therefore the story moves more slowly. However, this doesn't detract from the interesting twists in the work.
A good read - will read more of MacInnnes' books.
