Fairly average spy thriller mainly set in Helsinki. As I love Helsinki myself, the city descriptions were very enjoyable, but apart from that, this appeared to be nothing more than a bad James Bond copy.

Three US agents die in Europe and Deveraux, ex CIA agent is lured back to find out why and who is behind it.

I read 51% of the book before I decided that enough was enough, this book was for me. The funny thing is that when I sat down to write this (very) short review, I just couldn’t figure out the books plot, so I actually had to google the book to find out what the hell it was about. Not a good sign…

Anyway I couldn’t finish the books, it is all me, the book is probably great if the right person reads it, I wasn’t the right person.

Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy for an honest review!

Devereaux is no longer a spy. But when he suddenly gets calls from his former handler Hanley his life is about to change. Suddenly he is reactivated and must fight to stay alive.

This spy novel is the first in a series about Devereaux alias November. I thought it would be fun to read the book since book number 7 soon will be in released. The book wasn’t that bad in the beginning, but I never really got into the story. In the end I just felt like “ok” that was it, he/she was the bad guy/girl and I just didn’t care.

I will read one more book since I have requested and been granted book nr 3 in the series. Hopefully the book is better than this one.

Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy for an honest review!
