formulaic writing All novels beginning to sound the same Needs new style and end to current tired formula.
yes Too much of the same old, same old
capable, believeable, easy on the ear
story is issue, not a character
Tries too hard to keep pace with previous novels First two novels good to great; each subsequent book getting worse. Last book by this author for me.
Best spy thriller I've read in years. Convoluted yet rational. I'll order another of Boyd's novels.
