This book’s got more twists and turns to it than a wrigglin’ dew worm on a fishin’ hook. Higgins keeps you guessing all along: who’s the good guy --- or is he the bad guy? --- right up till the end. It’s about the post cold war espionage rivalry between the West and what’s left of the former USSR. This book satisfies: the bad guys get their just deserts at the end of the Walther barrel of the good guy. The reading is exciting and it becomes more so the further you get in this book. Happy reading.
