Treachery Of Spies

characters Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Manda Scott Treachery Of Spies review Ô 3 Manda Scott ☆ 3 review E the men and women of the Resistance were engaged in a desperate fight for survival against the Nazi invaders To find answers in the present Picaut must discover what really happened in the past untangling a web of treachery and intrigue that stretches back to the murder victim's youth a time when unholy alliances were forged between occupiers and occupied deals were done and promises broken The past has been buried for decades but as Picaut discovers there are those in the present whose futures depend on it staying that way – and who will kill to keep their secrets safe‘ A Treachery of Spies is the eual of Charlotte Gray in its insights into the period and I would say beats it for sheer excitement one of the most gripping spy stor. I read this book because of its stellar reviews It gets off to a very good start with an intriguing plot set in the present day shifting rapidly to events in the Second World War I found the description of SOE training methods deployment and operations much the most satisfying and credible part of the book If the story was meant to fall into the rattling good yarn category then I would give it 4 stars a bit over complicated and over engineered but otherwise good and leave it at that However from the author s notes I get the impression that she was trying to make some deeper points in which case it reuires further commentIt was when events moved beyond WW2 that the book started to lose credibility Spoiler Alert The episode in 1957 made no sense to me Why would the principal villain come back to try to kill a crippled former enemy hidden away in the Jura mountains He had got away scot free succeeded in constructing a successful new life in the US and the former SOE man presented no threat Further the attitudes of the former SOE team seemed very strange for the period They were frightened of US world dominance while the Soviet Union seemed to be regarded as a benign influence Yet these events took place less than 6 months after the Soviet Union had crushed the Hungarian uprising Surely at the very least they would have had a balanced view of world affairs than presented here However it was the events set in the present that I found the least convincing Firstly the survivors of the Mauis and SOE were much too old There was some lip service paid to their age but apparently no sight hearing or mobility problems one was still driving his Aston Martin round the mountains They felt 95 going on 35 to me Then and importantly there was an explicit idea that a small number of Nazis resettled in the US in the 40s and 50s could construct a huge conspiracy to corrupt US politics investment banks universities science through themselves their children and even their grandchildren Well maybe but it sounds like paranoia to me In the end I could not take the resolution of the plot seriously

characters Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Manda Scott Treachery Of Spies review Ô 3 Manda Scott ☆ 3 review Ies I have ever read’ Jake Kerridge S Magazine'This is a rich vein for fiction and Scott does itthan justice with this beautifully imagined beautifully written smart sophisticated but fiercely suspenseful thriller' Lee Child'Ingeniously plotted and wonderfully written' Antonia Senior The Times'The most exuisite story of heroism deception love and treachery you’ll find this year' Simon Mayo 'A fast moving tightly wrought thriller The destination is in fact as unexpected as it’s satisfying and very thought provoking' Robert Goddard 'A Treachery of Spies is a masterclass in thriller writing It is a heart racing heart wrenching read conceived with passion and executed with frightening skill An awe inspiring achievement' Giles Kristian. This begins and continues as a superb narrative The warning light comes on when and characters are introduced including a whole set of minor secondaries The action scenes are first class and show their research We soon learn who to hate and love But then with expectations sky high the narrative becomes completely incohate and all the old minor characters and their interminable familial relationships morph into major characters In one scene about five characters are in a room all pointing guns at each other At the end of the story I really had not the slightest idea who had done what to whom or why and the whole book slowly disintegrates Great shame Where on earth was her editor
