I think this is a simple case of mismatch between reader & book. I’m always willing to take a leap of faith when reading fiction but there has to be a core of believability to the plot. Much of the success of our MC depended on timely coincidence & lucky breaks & in the end I just couldn’t suspend my disbelief that far. Perhaps if the characters were more fleshed out or the author injected some black humour I would have been able to close one eye & enjoy the ride. That said, the historical aspect was fascinating & well researched which added a chilling edge to the story. It also serves up a warning about the consequences of forgetting the past that resonates in today’s world. Readers who are not too fussed about credibility & enjoy straight up action driven plots will find much to enjoy here.
