The Colonel's Mistake (A Mark Sava Spy Novel) by Dan Mayland
3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, 18 Mar 2014

That said, the characters are easy to relate to, the espionage and political machinations plausible and the plot skipped along nicely. I will definitely be looking into the follow up for my next beach lounger read.
