I am not usually greatly interested in biography but this account of the rise of a singular man to a position of great power is captivating

Unless you want to wade through this for some research - forget it. Thought it would be really ineresting but unable to finish.

Another book that is full of facts and gives an insight into the birth of modern spy departments. Pick up now and again

I persevered through to the end! It is a book for those who like facts. The biggest frustration is the continual footnotes which are at the back of the book. This makes accessing them a tad difficult on the Kindle. It is however a fascinating insight into Policing in the late 19th & early 20th centuries.

Factual, well referenced but it would have been a little easier to follow if written chronologically or if some sort of timeline had been included.

Interesting insight into how history repeats itself. Reading it enables one to evaluate current developments round the world where 'terrorism' rules.

Good book. Filled in some details I was unaware of for the (in)famous Sidney Reilly.
Not easy to put down.
One for the history buffs out there
