Of all of Forsyth's books, this one is the most spy-centred. It is set in one of his most favorite time periods, the very late stages of the Cold War, when the "old guard" of field hardened agents are being replaced by politically opportunistic bureaucrats, a breed that Forsyth holds in obvious contempt. Not up to the calibre of "Avenger" or "The Fourth Protocol" but an entertaining read for anyone who enjoys a good spy novel.
