Book review – Traitor’s Kiss – by Gerald Seymour

Traitor's KissTraitor’s Kiss by Gerald Seymour

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Here’s a writer who has definitely found his groove in the modern spy, suspense world. A position that rivals John LeCarre’s original supreme level. You’ll want to dig out the world atlas and locate Kaliningrad, Russia to see why it’s both forgotten and at the same time one of the most strategic of Russian missile and troop sites on the North Sea! The tension within the book is palpable. A high ranking Russian military spy, living and working within this fortress of Russian defenses, with access to a General’s top secret papers. The play-off and intrigue between the spy and the old style Soviet KGB counterspy system is accurate and well written. The resurrection of the old British commando type unit with all it’s quirks constantly undercut by a modern Whitehall man who no longer believes in boots on the ground makes for a classic chess match of wits, bullying and countermoves in this race to pull out a spy who has been made but not yet put in chains. The side story of the Russian spy catcher and interrogator is absolutely amazing. It doesn’t take water boarding to break even the toughest of men, only patience, empathy and the one on one techniques of a master. This is my pick for the best spy novel I’ve read. Action to the very end!
