really liked it

magnus pym was trained unwittingly by his father to be the perfect spy. his father was a con man of the highest order!!

follow pym from his childhood thru 50 years of lie as he rises thru the ranks and is being controlled by 2 agents from different countries who have been his lifelong mentors

then he disappears from vienna whilst counsellor at the british embassy whilst getting his life back on track after his unfortunate dismissal from washington

the chase is on led by his 2 agents to find a missing husband, devoted agent and a lifetime secret agent ......

intrigue and excellent reflections on happenings and life

just one question - why did georgie and and fergus not recognise the czech spy in the church?

great characterisation - first rate - 600 pages to savour!
