I've loved some of this author's past books; this was not one of them. I read the book to the end; it has flashes of excellence, but overall was disappointing. For starters, the author should get better command of jargon. People who work for the CIA aren't &quot;operatives&quot; or &quot;agents&quot;; they're &quot;officers&quot;. And nobody works for the &quot;CS&quot;. There were other inaccuracies that detracted from my enjoyment. Ultimately, the plot didn't hang together for me. One reviewer said the first part of the book was slow. In one sense that's true, but that was necessary to set up the plot elements. The pace did pick up but got steadily more and more unbelievable. There was an interrogation scene that was well-written and scarily memorable. All in all, an okay read, but not Deuterman's best work. The performance was excellent.

GREAT book! And thank goodness, Dick Hill was the narrator! I wanted to listen to the whole book in one sitting but instead, had to spread it over days (work and sleep demand attention, of course). If this is your first Deutermann, go back and listen to all the others. They are all excellent. Let's keep these coming PT!
