I won a copy from the Goodreads First Reads giveaway.I really enjoyed this book. It was well written with a good vocabulary and well paced plot. The characters and settings were well done for this type of political thriller. I liked that most of the french used was explained in a practical and effective manner so I didn't feel like I was being talked down to or have to Google the phrases I wasn't familiar with. There was a previous book written with the same main characters that I wish I had read, but I don't think I missed out on much by not having read it. I would certainly read other books by this author and will be recommending this to my family who enjoy reading this genre. The author did a fantastic job juggling the multiple plots and keeping everything going and giving the reader ample places to pause when you need to do things like sleep.
