Read in December, 2010
The book started off with great promise but got worse as the story progressed. You would not think the main character Jordan Weiss has been an intelligent officer for 10 years. She talked and acted like a total rookie. There was none of the usual surveillance, counter-suveillance a spy novel is almost required to have. If Joran is one of the characters in any of John La Carre, Charles Cumminings' novels, she would have gotten herself killed by Chapter 5. Flashbacks to Cambridge days was the better part of the book that I actually enjoyed reading. I am not sure if I even want to read the sequel The Hidden Affair.
