'Bizarre' and 'convoluted' aptly describe this spy novel. I chose to read it based on numerous commentators comparing Little to spy greats LeCarre and Deighton. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The style was fanciful as opposed to LeCarre and Deighton's overwhelming realism. The dialogue was trite, contrived and gratuitous, in stark contrast to LeCarre and Deighton's which is used solely to advance the plot. And, the storyline was set in some unrecognizable historical context or era, whereas LeCarre and Deighton's works reference real events and at least can be placed in the proper decade. Wholly disappointed. Justin

Although I found the characters interesting and the book did get better as it went along, I was not, however, interested in the authors use of historical descriptors to provide an insight into the Weeder. I found the ending to be totally confusing. I reread it four or five times and still could not figure it out. Was Huxstep in the bar or on the boat? Somebody Please Explain!!
