3.0 out of 5 stars Quick easy read, 2 May 2013
This review is from: A Foreign Country (Thomas Kell Spy Thriller, Book 1) (Paperback)
Saw this book in Tesco for £1.95 and read the back cover, recommendations and the first page and thought it would be a good 24 hour read. It proved to be just that. Ingredients good especially in the first half. Mixed and cooked well. Characters all right. Up to date on the spy industry issues. After the middle twist in the story it became more run of the mill. Enjoyed the read but will not read again.

Tyke says:
Run of the mill stuff. Clearly, Cummings has a real grasp of espionage, but the plot line is thin, and the characterisation shallow.
A good pot boiler for holiday reading, but I would not be buying any more of this author's novels, and I am puzzled by its best-selling status.

Your review echo's my review comment on the same book. Your last sentence perhaps poses and answers the same question. I read many similar best sellers for entertainment, then turn to more solid fiction reading for deeper satisfaction and future memories - such as Winter by Len Deighton my current read. I have completely forgotten the plot of Cumming's book read in May 13. Alexander of Allrighters' and Ywnwab!

Amazing how many second hand copies in charity shops so must have sold well.
