Description

Unfortunately Elise is not the only superfluous element in Crisis, although she is the most significant and irritating.

If you like your spy thrillers more James Bond than George Smiley, you may enjoy it but I won’t be going back for a second helping of Luke Carlton. While we are obviously supposed to root for the success of the couple, halfway through she snogs a man who is such a cliche of arseholery (name of Hugo, Goldman Sachs banker, slick back hair etc etc) that she is clearly a dick. When asking readers to suspend their disbelief, the author shouldn’t then ask them to suspend even more disbelief, especially so early in the plot.If Ultimatum is even 80% similar to Crisis, though, I will give up 75% through, just as I wanted to at multiple points during Crisis. He has written for the Economist, Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph and Time Out and has been published in The Best of Sunday Times Travel Writing.

He was an officer in the Green Jackets and worked in banking in Saudi Arabia, he speaks fluent Arabic. I would strongly suggest sticking with the book if you find the beginning a little slow – the action definitely intensifies as the story progresses and I found this a real page-turning thriller the further I went.Elise was a frustratingly annoying presence and their was little rapore between any of the main characters.

A novel so pedestrian, trite and unintentionally funny that it reads better as a satire on the genre than as genuine thriller. The final section does ramp up the tension, although the stakes are set too high for you to ever really believe that the bad guys will succeed in their goals, but it far too much of a slog to get to that point. It is quite exciting being able to read a novel and know exactly where the main character's workplace is because you have been in that area before in real life. There are a lot of characters but other than Luke, Elise Angela and Jorge, the rest aren't really memorable.Awarded an OBE in 2005 for services to journalism, Frank Gardner was profiled in the BBC's television series, Who Do You Think You Are? The technical information is so injudiciously rationed that reading it feels like getting waterboarded by Q.
