DISCLOSURE I was given a copy of this novel by Victor Robert Lee in exchange for an honest review This book needs to be a movie That's all I could think while reading it from start to finish I'll tell you right now I don't usually read spy or thriller style novels but after reading this I think I might need to look into reading of them The characters in this book are a masterpieceCono breaks the mould of every sort of stereotypical spy hero He manages to be simultaneously a cut above the rest of us while still maintaining human flaws I feel Mr Lee managed a feat seldom achieved by even seasoned authors and this is his first novelThe story is interesting and fast paced for almost the entire book the only thing that really kept this from being a five star read for me is that there are some slight pacing issues before the first half I am confident in future work the author will get even better in this regard Overall it's a minor flaw in a really enjoyable readMy favourite part of this book though is simply how cinematic it all is The author is a master of non cluttered description particularly of action scenes and geography I can't wait to read about future travels of Cono I felt like I really learned about new places as I readI really really really want this book to be a film
