Having enjoyed David Hosp's previous books, I was eager to read this new publication. The research about, and scene setting, in Afghanistan were convincing to one who has little knowledge or experience of the country. However, the characters in the USA seemed less convincing to me (but I am British!);the 'heroine' was just too capable; the agents a little too formulaeic, and the "twist" was unfortunately predictable. The main theme was interesting and unusual, this did keep me reading but there were just too many violent deaths.In my opinion it's worth a read for those who like fast paced, interesting plots with a background of well researched information and who can cope with lots of violence. Just not right for me.
