    14. This novel by J Sydney Jones is a mystery taking place in modern times but whose history reaches back to the Cold War I was disappointed in the writing from the beginning and found it jarring and inarticulate I suspect that the writer intended the book to in the hard boiled style of James Cain The mystery wasn t interesting to me either Maybe I wasn t my type of novel.
