At first, I didn't like it much, but after a while I found the storyline quite plausible, well the spy parts. The spy parts are all great. I really like the spy parts. I wish that was all the novel. The romance part is annoying but it's forgivable because the spy parts are really effective. But everything comes undone on the last page. Just like his version of The Third Man, he wrecks things with a totally inappropriate ending. I don't know why he had to do that. Yuck.
