When my friend was clearing out an old storeroom at her workplace, she found a huge number of books tucked away out of sight. Rather than see them thrown out, I kindly offered to adopt them all for BookCrossing.

Grrr ... had to give up on this one. Just got very, very, very bored. The premise seemed promising, but by page 100, not really much had happened. The main character is a bit of drip and although I found the whole 'spy' ring fascinating, I started longing for anything interesting to occur. Not one for me.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Thank you! I am looking forward to read it.
Usually, I enjoy reading novels by this British author. But this time around, it wasn’t the case. I don’t know where she wanted to go with this story, but I felt that the whole novel was a failure. She usually good with building characters and playing with psychology and the motives behind the crime. Here, it seems that she used a child-game and make it like it was real, so much that another character thought it was a gang exchanging messages and tried to crack the code. The whole story seemed like it would never end, it dragged on and on, without having any real meaning. Overall, it was a disappointment for me this novel, as I was used to much better writing and plotting from this author.
