Set mainly in Syria, this is a book about counter-intelligence and double-dealings during the conflict. It was interesting to get an idea of what is really going on behind the news. We are never quite sure who are the good guys and who are the bad guys, and there are some pretty nasty characters. The game keeps changing and the story has many twists and turns. There's plenty of action-imagine James Bond in a tight spot - and things don't always turn out as one might imagine. It's a cleverly constructed story, but one does need to concentrate as who is who can be confusing, I actually took notes to help me. The beginning gave us quite a lot of information and I had to re-read it a couple of times to set it in my head. The setting of the book seems well researched and convincingly portrayed. It's interesting to get a glimpse into other lands and their cultures from the safety of your own home. This book transports the reader into the somewhat dangerous life in the Middle East as it is at the moment. Chris Woolfenden, A LoveReading Ambassador
