Codename Wolf

Codename Wolf by Gil Hogg

Rating:  * * *

Roger Conway joins the British secret service on a lark, then, still a novice, finds himself thrown into a high-stakes operation including a new Cuban missile crisis, assassination attempts, and a clandestine group of operatives known as The Disciples.

Roger’s route to the secret intelligence service is entertaining:  dishonest, but ingenious, with a bit of luck thrown in.  The book is well written, moving along quickly and with plenty of red herrings and conspiracy theories.  Yarham, Roger’s right-hand man, is the most interesting and only likeable character in the book:  intelligent, quick-witted, content without being stodgy.  Roger is tiresome.  Four stars for the idea and the writing style.  Two stars for the story.

Through NetGalley, I received a copy of this book from the publisher.
