I'm a fan of P.T. Deutermann, but this book was a disappointment. I couldn't tell if he was trying to write a modern "Taming of the Shrew" or write a adventure novel -- neither worked. The narrator did OK on some voices but he made the Israeli "Shrew" sound like an Indian male. I found it very distracting and irritating.
I'd pass on this book
The author clearly understand trade craft and has an intimate knowledge of both American and Russian intelligence agencies. I thought the story was realistic and plausible and left an opening for a sequel. The characters are realistic, humans with attendant foibles and flaws.
McCarry was always my favorite author of this genre but I think Jason Matthews may well surpass him. I highly recommend this book.
I'm sorry -- I thought this book was awful. The storyline was weak and unbelievable. I thought the narration was good but it was more about Muslims converting to Christianity than a realistic drama about a confrontation between the US and Iran.
