The head of a London software development firm is coerced into an off-the-books contract: vetting the location system of a guided missile. Unwittingly, he's gotten himself in the middle of a clandestine war between the Israeli and Iranian intelligence services. This thriller is as much about character as action. The motives driving the actors aren't always clear to each other or even to the reader, yet clarity emerges as the players' paths converge. Surprises abound until the final page.
VERDICT Hiller's (Shake Off) third book starts slowly but takes off as webs of intrigue tighten around its characters. A twisty, engaging read for espionage fiction fans.
