I had pretty high expectations for Leslie's novels, and I was terribly let down. It wasn't the worst of the series, but there were several off-putting things. Firstly - and this is minor, but somehow sticking - the death count was unusually high, not only in the abstract numerical (fifty-plus people died in each plane crash) but witnesses keep getting gruesomely murdered left, right and center.

The body count in this one really is very high, and hard hitting in the light of modern terrorism, but the individual murders are just as unpleasant, quite graphically described. This isn't a bad book though. Fast paced and thrilling enough, although occasionally it seems a bit dim. Why does the airline continue to slavishly use a device that's been shown to cause one crash, let alone multiple ones? But Illya and Napoleon are portrayed pretty well, and it was an engaging read.

Excellent book adaptation of the TV series. Great spy adventure book. This is how the CIA and FBI should operate. Recommended
