MOSCOW EXILE, by John Lawton is a book full of global espionage and international intrigue. Spies never really tell the truth and the question in this novel quickly becomes who is lying, whose is telling the truth and the reality that no one is really doing either.
This book, being part of a series, weighs heavily on the assumption that the reader has met several of the characters before. There is also large dose of colloquialisms that were not all easily decipherable. As the book progresses, there is a learning curve so that by the end, the reader knows all of the players. Closer to the end of the book, the faster the revealing twists and misdirections start to layer on top of each other and build to a fun ending. The way Lawton wrapped his fictional tale are actual history is a lot of fun and convinces the reader that something like this could have happened.
The benefit of reading the whole series would make the book easier to connect to and enjoy, but I still found MOSCOW EXILE entertaining and I was looking forward to see how all of the characters ended up.
Thank you to Grove Atlantic, John Lawton, and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Great spy story, set in England in the mid-1950's. Plenty of historical detail and interesting characters. It's a long read but worth it.

Sans doute de l'intérêt, mais pas fini, ce qui est rare… une construction maladroite.
