5.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected!, 30 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Loyal Spy (Paperback)
I'm not an avid reader of spy thrillers, but decided to give it a shot. Prior to reading it I had worrying visions of this trying to be something of a modern version of James Bond. However, I could not have been further from the truth and was not disappointed with what I had read.

The book follows a group of individuals who had previously been part of the now-disbanded `Afghan Guides' - a secret MI6-funded group of soldiers operating in Afghanistan during the 1990s. None of them manage to fully escape their previous lives and are finally all thrust back in to their old ways to try and track down a one-time friend who has now turned on the group and their home country.

By following these individuals in trying to track down a one-time friend, you become fully immersed in the globalised world of espionage and the war on terror where you are only five name-checks away from your greatest ally and enemy.

My only criticism of an otherwise brilliant book would be the amount of space devoted to the characters love lives. Some detail you can do without. Still 5 stars though!
