Review: I am not a big fan of historical fiction as it needs lots of research and precision and takes into time to get the content read into the mind. I did not like much this present book. The youngster who became a spy is an attempt to keep suspense alive which did not impress me much. The author could not match to keep the demographic and chronological narration to the point usually historical fictional thriller keeps up. I did not like the history nor suspense essence of the story. The author could not incite anxiety in me as the work went towards the ends of the story. If you are in need of a very simple read you can try this book else skip reading and save time.
