I enjoyed the story. Holz places his characters in locations he clearly knows well and writes with passion about them. Tom Bowin, the main character, has a background which, in my view, would make his part-time government role challenging to sustain, ethically. But one man¿s ethics are¿well, you get the picture. History has plenty of such examples. Still, he appears to be a decent Joe, and his rationale and motivations are closely argued.
The main plot is thoroughly credible and well backed up with scientific collateral. Although it wasn¿t in my branch of science, I found it convincing. The US governmental dilemma about whether to break the law to ensure US security comes in for deep and well-informed debate, and the arguments are well presented, from both sides.
For a man who leads a fairly monastic life, Tom seems to get plenty of sex. Though a lot is left to the imagination, the groundwork builds well. There is quite a lot on the softer side of relationships too, and I think this would give the book appeal to women. Chick-lit it certainly isn¿t ¿ there is plenty of blood and guts, with well-thought-out action sequences. Food and wine are important too, and it¿s clear that the author has discriminating taste.
I reviewed the Kindle version, on a laptop with the Kindle app, and it took some getting used to. Despite having to read it at the desk, I was drawn in and was startled when I realised I¿d finished reading it.
For me, this fell a tad short of 4 stars, but it rates well above a 3 star. It¿s good holiday or weekend reading, and I will read the next in series. I also gave me the itch to visit French Canada, which says something about Holz¿s ability to pen portraits!
