I thought it started out okay, even interesting, but then it went downhill. I just couldn't buy into the whole spy thing - the reason the hero took up spying, how he came to be at the Christmas ball, the escape, and so on. It felt all rather too contrived for my tastes, as seemed some of the characters' actions and the plot, especially later on. I found myself feeling irritated and slightly bored the more I read with nothing I really liked (though there's nothing "wrong" with the writing itself). It ended up with only 1 star, because the story didn't work for me and I can't really say it was an okay read for me.
