This won't be a retelling of the story as there are plenty of good ones out there already.
As fascinating (if war can be fascinating) as the plot, military and government shenanigans, mostly foreign setting, International Court, etc. were, the one thing I have to mention was his character "Atilla." I read probably way too much for my own good, but of all the characters I've come across, Atilla in this book is a classic. Her self-description is priceless. Esma was as uninspired as Atilla was the opposite.
And the narrator! Wow. I will be looking for him as well. He has that tenor sort of voice, if that is the right descriptor for the tone, that I so enjoy.
Thanks for an entertaining and informative several hours.

I've read many of his books and have always enjoyed the stories and the characters. I appreciate how he weaves legal issues together. I like the change in setting to Europe and the interesting story. What I did NOT like was the unnecessary sex scenes and the character of Attila. He tried way too hard to create a foul-mouthed woman who appeared to have a masculine identity. Some of the sex scenes were clearly written from a male fantasy. Naturally the 55 year old main character is attracted to women 15+ years younger and of course they're highly attracted to him. Another male fantasy. Very disappointing!
