I almost didn't review Tightrope because it is not the sort of thing I usually read. A colleague recommended it to me. It is a sort of post WWII spy thriller.
The heroine is compulsively interesting. The writing is taut and very engaging.
I found myself making time to read this book – and at the end I couldn't put it down.
So if you're in the mood for a tense but satisfying read, this may be one for you.
