I was a little sceptical when I started reading, historical fiction has never really been my thing, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This intricate tale of espionage and warfare had me on the edge of my seat.
I’m ashamed to say I had never read anything by Rory Clements, but after reading this I will make an effort to rectify that. It was extremely well written.
The writing style and plot were both engaging and fast paced. I was never bored! The story had me gripped from the very beginning all the way to the end. It is thought-provoking and utterly amazing to curl up with.
The protagonist, Cambridge spy, Tom Wilde, is fresh and exciting from the perspective of someone who hasn’t read Clements’ other books. I found myself so invested in this story, it was as if I was there with him!
I would recommend this book to all fans of historical fiction. It’s a good read you won’t regret.
