It’s solidly okay. It has a very basic story that it tells in laborious detail. This is okay with me but there’s a good argument to be made that whole chunks of this book could be condensed down into a few paragraphs as connective information in a more inventive story. It’s a basic story that moves on rails but it’s not as economical as it could be and it has plenty of narrative dead ends that don’t come to much.
The climax is heavy on action which is pretty dreary to read as prose.
Also it has dated quite badly since it was published in 1984. Obviously the interconnectedness of the world has changed significantly since then.
It’s written in the third person present tense which is a slightly odd way of writing a novel. It’s frowned upon in certain circles as “unreadable”. It’s a big no-no for some people. I got used to it very quickly so it was a non-issue.
I’m dismissing it more than I mean to as it was enjoyable enough. It’s certainly better written and conceived than anything by Lee Childs etc. It’s a decent novel but not one I would loudly recommend.

Yeah it's nice to have money. Makes eveything soooo much easier. Smoother. No muss, no fuss. Taxi please.
This was in the 'DISCARD' rack at the library. I can see why.
