Book Review

In my view, this title suggests a completely different type of book than this actually is. Because it has a complicated plot and because it is historical fiction, it may not have as wide an audience as popular series books, but there are definitely readers who will appreciate this niche. There is some interest in romance, but that is a function of the larger spy plot and not the primary focus of the story. Some of the pacing is a bit slow, but this is a unique selection.
