Top critical review
Coulda been superb (must at least read the first chapter - scorching!)
on 19 July 2017
First chapter ('house-jacking' in Saf. Africa) - best first chapter I've ever read. Grabs you by the throat, and you can't wait for the story to continue.
Unfortunately, the story then does continue with mostly amazingly complex (and dull) happenings in a 'spy factory' in Hamburg.
Very good 'chase', and search, and showdown, but - boyyo - does getting there take perseverence!
The elements of an outstanding novel, spoiled by the unnecessary complexity and obtusenes.
