I found this novel to be fascinating, but very convoluted. If you didn't pay real attention to each facet of it, you could easily get lost. But I also found it to possibly be one of the most realistic portraits of what espionage is probably really like than anything else I've read in recent years. The characters are generally not people you would like to be around unless under duress. They lie, sneak and are totally underhanded in most of their activities and are proud to have accomplishments like that. The internal politicking of some, in their desire for career advancement, is appalling. All of which makes for good reading!
