As someone once said, ‘it takes a real spy to write a great spy thriller.’

Harry Connolly, the international man of mystery and latent fugitive not only speaks with an American accent but also speaks most of the Continental languages, fluently.

Harry’s Rule is a linguistic exploration, from French, German to Russian and Israeli. The book covers many countries too. The author seems to know them intimately. It’s not only a thinking man’s spy novel but it’s also a rich travelogue by a former intelligence agent, now turned full time writer.

He is in a league of his own. No one is writing about Russian villains any more, except Michael R Davidson. The book was that good, I’m looking forward to anything this thoughtful and unassuming novelist writes. While most thriller writers make things up, this guy writes from real life experiences.
