This review is from: Night Heron (Kindle Edition)
Every so often a debut espionage/thriller novel is published which stands out for its originality, authenticity, excitement.....or whatever. Thinking about the debut novels that stand out for me - The Day of the Jackal, Fatherland, Remembrance Day, Lie in the Dark, Los Alamos - they are usually written by journalists. Night Heron is a stunningly good debut. Written by a BBC correspondent, it offers a great insight into the espionage war against China. Exciting, authentic...and, above all else, interesting.
