When I got an email invitation to read this book through Netgalley, I couldn’t resist it (I always have troubles resisting to read a book when I’m directly asked to) even though spy thrillers in general are not something I have a lot of experience with.
In this cold-war book (it almost breathes cold war, for as much as an ebook can do that) Nazis have been hiding and waited for the perfect moment to return to power, plotting in the shadows.
While perhaps it could have been an enjoyable book, I didn’t like it. It wasn’t for me. Also, being first published in 1975 to me it felt outdated. Not just because of the cold war vibe, but also the writing itself. I was thinking to myself ‘this book hasn’t aged well’. But I did see especially in certain parts a spy thriller that looked not bad, even though I didn’t like it.
What I’ve learned from this novel: That I can say no to a Netgalley email invitation…
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
