    Alec Milius is young, smart, and ambitious. He also has a talent for deception. He is working in a dead-end job when a chance encounter leads him to MI6, the elite British Secret Intelligence Service, handing him an opportunity to play center stage in a dangerous game of espionage.

    Overall

    I never written an audible book review before, but I find the low rating of this book is so unjust that I’m propelled to express my opinion.

    I enjoyed listening to this book very much. I thought Charles Cumming is a terrific new writer, and I can’t wait to read/listen to his other books. As I grew up, I was a Sherlock Holmes fan. Arthur Conan Doyle made all his characters so vivid and so real. I think Charles Cumming also has the talent to bring all his characters alive. Alec Milius, the main character, a somewhat confused young person you may know somewhere. He will invite you to join him as his confidant. You will meet the people he meets and experience the same events as he endured. By the end of the book you almost feel as if you have witnessed real incidents unfolding. The only thing preventing me from thinking the accounts in this book could not be totally real is the current political climate. I do not think an American Intelligence Organization will be involved in a few of the most devious deeds as depicted in this book.

    If you like action packed, shoot-them-up type of cheap thrillers, you can skip this book. If you like intelligent, well written, intriguing stories about the modern world of espionage, I highly recommend this little gem.
