I was expecting more of a spy novel with this one. No, I did not read the back cover or reviews or really anything about this book. I suppose my prejudice stemmed from something I (miss?)read about Graham Greene. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this book and really enjoyed it. Some passages in this book made me cringe and some made me laugh and in the end isn't that what we all want? No, I guess some people just want a spy novel.
