Okay... but the MC is no Bond!
on 11 June 2015
Action, adventure, an Israeli man with a troubled past, and a young woman caught in the middle of it all. Not a bad read overall, but not my favourite Follett book. It read a bit too much like an attempt at a Bond-style adventure, but it failed to meet the mark. If based on true facts, this would certainly have been an impressive (if scary) thing for anyone to pull off.
I did get this book on offer for under £2, and was shocked when I came to review that it had doubled in price. For those looking for a "Pillars of the Earth" type book, this is not it!
