"Good but not his best"
I like JA's style of writing. He gets you hooked straight away and with this book it is the same. Not really one of his best stories though, bit predictable and dull but nevertheless enjoyable.
"A really good thriller"
Just as good as when I first read the book nearly 49 years ago. Some of the details have been updated but it's basically the same story. I would thoroughly recommend this book.
unnecessary sex scenes they did not add too the story or the tension.
Descriptions of Washington were interesting along with the workings of American government.
"Not one of Archers Best"
Not one of Archers best books.
Unconvincing story line
Suggest if looking for one of his books Kane and Abel, Prisoners Diary or A Prisoner of Birth.
"Very Good! "
A few skips but that isn't Jeffrey Archers fault. Interesting and face paced book, having now read many of Jeffrey Archers books, this is classically in his style of writing. The story line keeps you interested to the end!
