APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
It’s exciting to read an espionage thriller that matches Le Carré for tension and intrigue yet moves along at a cracking pace. That’s exactly what this brilliant page-turner delivers. The debut novel from Terry Hayes—the veteran screenwriter behind Dead Calm and many iconic TV series, including Bodyline and Bangkok Hilton—is among the best we’ve read in a while.
First I've read by this author, goes straight into my Top5 best reads ever. I was gripped from page1. Well written with excellent plot
This book is great. Keeps u on the edge of your seat the whole way. I didnt want to put it down & wanted it to keep goin.... Only took me 2 weeks to complete the book. The weaving together of the stories, the complex drive & emotions of the individuals, simply the best & wondering what i can next since it will b difficult to surpass this book.
Feels so real.
Thrilling stuff honestly.
