This is an excellent book, well read by Michael Jayston, who does a superb job.
The plot is plausible, in spite of the involvement of the usual american three letter agencies, and the story unfolds in a natural, unforced way. The ending is particularly poignant. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Just read The Ghost by Robert Harris. This is the first of seven of his novels I have read that falls short of the standard of excellence. Why ? The novel is too close to recent events; I know this was intentional and the fictional Ex-Prime-minister is based on Tony Blair but the reader will not be able to remove this thought from his / her mind and it becomes more a comment on recent events than the work of a master storyteller which is what Robert Harris is. Nevertheless, the theory unfolded at the end is an interesting one and once again, I highly recommend a Robert Harris novel to potential readers.
My rating: 4/5.
