This latest book in the Spycatcher series does not rival the complex ambiguity of a John Le Carré novel nor does it require a great amount of mental dexterity to follow the storyline. But it is fun!
This is faster paced and has more action than the previous books in the series. The action begins almost immediately and continues unabated throughout the book. If you enjoyed the first two books in the series you should find this book to your taste. If you are new to this series I would suggest you read the books in sequence. The hero of these books is more in the genre of James Bond than George Smiley.
Those of you who enjoy a fast paced and entertaining distraction on the long drive home from work will find this novel and excellent buy. If you need something steeped in psychological drama such as a Le Carré novel this book is not for you.

What did you love best about Slingshot?
The complexity of both the storyline and the characters.
Who was your favorite character and why?
It is always going to be Will Cochran but I found myself surprisingly endeared to "Kronos" by the end of the tail.
Which character – as performed by Rich Orlow – was your favorite?
Though his "something silly" caused a lot of problems and deaths, in terms of performance I enjoyed Linka's character best. Something about his accent, pitch, tone, just fit his character so well and was so distinct.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The Spies Among Us
Any additional comments?
I have followed this series in audiobook since Spycatcher and it has become my favorite series of books since Harry Potter.
