Sein neunter Thriller. „This one requires close reading because of the detail involved in a novel involving digital conspiracy and treason, and different levels of national values by the principals. Thus, it may be slower reading than most thriller readers are looking for, but this is a complex novel, with carefully drawn characters, and details that produce a compelling read. This is a brilliant display of the ability of Ignatius to gather a huge amount of digital information, the complexities of national spycraft, a tight photograph of the most important characters and their interplay on an international stage.” (Leser) (458 Rezensionen / 3,7 Sterne), 384 Seiten noch günstig?
