I like that kind of books - pageturners with interesting plot and setting. But this book is not good enough. Although the political intrigue is well-written, there are two things I abslutely dislike. First,. it's the ending, but the most important is character creation. A book can't be good, if you don't like the main character, or when you read and think that he oor she acts stupidly. That's why I recommend you to read some of James Rollings book or Dan Browns.
