Maybe unlike the other books in the series you get a sense that Tom is out on his own trying to survive and to some extent out of his depth, knowing that the truth maybe critical to both sides in the war and that maybe your closest allies can’t be trusted.
Whilst the fifth book in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone, however I think you would soon be devouring the rest.
I liked this book. It was a beautiful hardback and the cover is stunning. Spy books are not normally my sort of thing, but this was great. I had heard great things and this book definitely lived up to the hype. I may have changed my mind about liking spy thrillers now and will have to read more in the future. Highly recommended book and author.
The twist, which was more of a bad guy reveal, didn’t have me shocked beyond comprehension but I did enjoy how it really could’ve been anyone - they all acted like shady characters so we knew it was one of them.
