A plausible vision of climate catastrophe combines with French freelance spies and Bond-like action forming a gripping page-turner of a thriller.
This is the type of book that’s hard for me to put down. Right from the start there’s action. Lots of characters, plot twists, subplots, and I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. Then I sat down to write this review and I started to think, wow so much happened I don’t know what to say about the novel since I would hate to give something away. I’m not a fan of spoilers.
It was hard for me to determine the good guys from the bad ones. Sometimes that can be irritating. However, in this case, it was perfect. Spy thrillers should be thrilling. If you know what’s going to happen and who to trust, why read it? The anticipation and dread are half the fun.
I liked the pacing of this novel and the multiple points of view. Before reading this novel I hadn’t heard of the author. I’m hoping more of his works are available in English. If you’re in the mood for a fast-paced spy thriller, I recommend giving this a go.
