Absolute trash, unbelievably bad and anodyne, yet I read both... No, it's honestly terrible, the most pathetically boring, unimaginative storyline ever encountered, populated by the most anodyne collection of stereotypes ever assembled. It has all the right ingredients for a massive piss-take except irony. Dear god why?

The most annoying feature was the author's enthusiastic acceptance of the Sky News version of the world, the protagonists encounter (and of course, triumph over) vicious Russian mobsters, slimy French secret service, Al Quaeda and the Taliban, ignoring all vestige of reality as they do.

For what was promised as a fascinating and real life look into the world of government intelligence we instead get a boring and contrived look into the mind of some dry brained fantasist. I had hoped humankind had progressed beyond this..
