I think that most people have gotten the point that I only read and post about books I enjoy, so there is no suspense in that. I mention this because I enjoy Gayle Lynds’ books so much. Before reading her latest book, I read the jacket and the comments by the other authors. No matter what they say I know I am in for a nice ride. The Book of Spies is no exception.
James Patterson says it is “Da Vinci Code meets Bourne Identity.” It is 378 pages of twists and turns that is hard to put down. Lynds introduces us to some interesting and amazing characters. She has created at minimum 5 characters; each one could have a new series. The plot twists and turns are believable. The detail is amazing, and the entire novel is captivating. The Book of Spies embodies what the suspense genre is all about.
I am going to have to say that next to Caught by Harlan Coben this is one of my favorites for 2010. Giving the book a try is not a waste of time, but an investment in enjoyment. Gayle Lynds delivers a white knuckle roller coaster ride, one of the best of this year, in The Book of Spies. Don’t miss it.
