I was drawn to this book following the authors article in the Guardian bemoaning a lack of working class characters in spy novelsA uick read I found it to be an enjoyable romp set in the period of The 39 Steps For me the book flows well however the main character is not as rounded as Deighton s Harry Palmer or a Callan It s main danger is that of becoming a cliche of the Sharpe Novels rough working class hero falls for female whilst fighting villains etc I hope this does not happen That said I have preordered the second novel and recommend this one
