Good stuff, on the whole. Ordinaryish sort of an English bloke gets caught up in an assassination plot. It’s wartime and he’s some kind of munitions engineer so I guess he’s not quite so ordinary but he’s clearly out of his depth. An entertaining enough story though there were bits of the ending I found a bit - implausible seems the wrong word, lazily plotted maybe - but then there was one bit of the ending I liked as well. Overall it was a fun read and I have plans to read more of his books, not least because there’s a handful of them around the house that my partner keeps buying (and reading).
