Generally it isn't too hard to follow the narrative but the author seems to assume that the reader has a greater background knowledge of the principal characters, enough at least to be able to identify them from the several pseudonyms applied to them without constantly checking back to see who is who.
In the world of espionage code names are to be expected but there seems to be no excuse for using aliases or even nicknames plus the person's real name within one paragraph. All that achieves is confusion, made worse by the fact that sometimes more than one person is treated similarly in the same passage. It really makes the story more difficult to follow than it really is or in fact needs to be.
Shame really. Owens' is interesting and the way that the various agencies on both sides handled him is an interesting insight into the early espionage/counter espionage developments in WWII. It deserves better than this account.
