Simon Reagan
The first thing you notice when you begin to read this story is just how well written it is. The language is concise, clean and crisp, and context conveyed with just the right amount of detail. One minute you're sitting at a table in one of the central character's favourite restaurants, looking at a meal of sea trout and carrots, the next you're drawn in to a conspiratorial conversation about political whistleblowing. Conversation is convincing and realistic, and immediately brings you alongside the main characters as if you already know them. This is a context and detail driven story, and this is one of its many strong points. There's intrigue everywhere, and the references to previous political events such as the Prague Spring reinforce this. This is a clever, perfectly structured piece which draws in the reader- you don't want to put it down. If you like political thrillers in the style of 'House of Cards', then this one is for you. Highly recommended.
