I suppose the plot twist here is relatively obvious, and the second half a little far-fetched. However it's strength is in its characterisation, pace and the vivid picture it paints of Russia in the immediate aftermath of the breakup of the USSR. It was refreshing to read this as it reminded me that Robert Harris can actually write good thrillers, in contrast to the cynical exercise in cashing in that was "The Ghost".
