    This is another proper spy book And it starts by stating the obvious There s a traitor in the MI6, and now we follow a bunch of characters around, trying to figure out who among it is You know the players, you know what they do, and you suspect every action As typical of the genre of that type, there s a lot of geo hopping, something that James Bond established in the previous decades, so you need at least a dozen exotic yet weird locations to support the plot This was before you could go o This is another proper spy book And it starts by stating the obvious There s a traitor in the MI6, and now we follow a bunch of characters around, trying to figure out who among it is You know the players, you know what they do, and you suspect every action As typical of the genre of that type, there s a lot of geo hopping, something that James Bond established in the previous decades, so you need at least a dozen exotic yet weird locations to support the plot This was before you could go on Google Maps and see what gives for yourself.We will also get to see the charming Tweed character in several other books All in all, laid back rainy Sunday kind of thriller book, the modern day equivallent of Poirot s mysteries Wossname You get the idea.There was a man named Tweed,Double agents he set to mislead,About face,National disgrace,For hunting spies was his creed.Cheers,Comrade Igor McTrustyface

    A forgotten gem of a thriller Colin Forbes has done it again, though I did notice that it had a bit of language The others I have read had practically none at all I can t wait to read another murder mystery from Forbes

    A really good old fashioned cold war thriller Took me right back to the mid eighties and was especially weird as it had some genuine real life political characters from the time, although reading it knowing what we know now made it strange at times and the author was clearly caught up in the fear of the time and clearly nails his colours to the mast of which side of the east west divide he was a part of I m not sure history quite views Gorbachev in the way Forbes did at the time For me it was A really good old fashioned cold war thriller Took me right back to the mid eighties and was especially weird as it had some genuine real life political characters from the time, although reading it knowing what we know now made it strange at times and the author was clearly caught up in the fear of the time and clearly nails his colours to the mast of which side of the east west divide he was a part of I m not sure history quite views Gorbachev in the way Forbes did at the time For me it was personally interesting as at about the time the book was written, I lived in Kings Lynn where part of the book was set and I stayed in the hotel that the main character Tweed stayed in I also made a trip to Scandinavia and went on the hydrofoil between Copenhagen and Malmo also mentioned Until recently I hadn t read any Colin Forbes books since the eighties so it really was a blast from the past and I enjoyed the bookbecause of that.I have always like Colin Forbes s cold war books featuring Tweed and his team although I don t always find them brilliant and think he sometimes explains things and characters too much and spells out the same thing again and again which can me monotonous at times The ending in this one was particularly weak and came as a bit of an anti climax

    Not bad Only my second Colin Forbes book, I was looking for something akin to John Le Carre This was sufficiently rich with geographical and procedural detail and to hold my interest, without any of the characters being excessively macho, a common flaw I find in 70 s and 80 s books of this type Tweed isn t as likeable as perhaps George Smiley, but he s not a complete arsehole either Next up Deadlock.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here SPOILERS Exciting, fast paced and confusing, but with a weak and unsatisfactory ending Forbes used some of the plot tropes in The Stockholm Syndicate In hindsight Forbes characterization of Gorbachev as a criminal mastermind is ridicolous.
