The Eighth Sister by Robert Dugoni




Anyone would think I was a fan of thrillers given how many I have read recently.  But it isn't my favourite genre.  But The Eighth Sister was a very good read indeed.

It is contemporary – had spies, the CIA, Russia, a court case and government hijinks.  The original premise perhaps was a little out there but once you buy into that this book hurtles along.

The first half is a spy thriller and the second half a courtroom drama – quite a nice balance.

Although I didn't know this author I see that he has written quite a lot of crime books.  The experience shows.

I liked that the main character was a 64 year old man – not a James Bond type at all.
