I'm about half way through this and I give up. I enjoy really good spy stories, but this one is boring, does little to keep the reader hooked on what they mystery might be and is, frankly, just boring. Add to that the fact that I listen to my books on tape and this one in particular is narrated by a gentleman named John Lee who is flat and has little to no characterization of voices for the various cast members. The combination of boring story and boring narrator makes me wish I hadn't already wasted 4.5 hours listening to this book. I'd say skip it unless the subject matter is something that you're deeply interested in.
