This book had it all: Poorly conceived characters, a complete lack of tension, a totally forseeable plot, and eye-roll inducing dialogue. Stay away. Stay very far away. Read full review

Review: The Spy Who Jumped Off the Screen: A Novel

User Review  - Caroline - Goodreads

I got this at the airport to replace 'Grand Solo for Anton'. Another miss. Thought the intro by Clinton promised a great mystery but it is so cliche, I quit reading it less than a quarter of the way through. Read full review
