    One thought on “Letters For A Spy

    1. Fareeha

      Some books written in years past are quaint but charming. This isn't one of them. It's more of the run-of-mill, simplistic in the extreme (which isn't a virtue for a spy story), light on everything, tedious kind of a book (especially because of side characters). If you left it for a year and then came back to you, it'll require no recollection at all as it's so placid and expected as a puddle. Each character is dull as ditch water and that's saying something with the 'hero' as a special agent/sp [...]

      "Letters for a Spy" is a really nice book that kept me well entertained. It is not one of those books that you can't put down and that are highly addictive but it is one of those books that are like the familiar cup of tea on a winter's eve after a glass of champaign at the party the day before. You know what you want, you get what you want and you enjoy every page of it. Reliable, sweet but nevertheless never dull or boring.The story is well written and the characters are also well developed wh [...]

      I love a good spy story, especially when it is coupled with a romance. Although there was very little of this until the latter part of the book, the mystery more than adequately compensated. The story moved along at a fast pace, helped along by lots of clever dialogue, and held my interest from the start to the action packed conclusion.

      There seemed to be a lot of lead-up to the end and then wrapped up, too quickly, in a tidy, little bow. It was strange having an entire chapter that was done in only pronouns - no names, at the beginning of the book. This also made it rather confusing in the first couple of chapters as to who was doing what. It was a quick read, but I don't think that I would pursue other books by this author.
