A Single Spy
A Single Spy. There have been plenty of great espionage novels, and would there be anything fresh in yet one more set during World War II? In a word: absolutely. Christie gives readers an interesting and complex character in an orphan, Alexsi Ivanovich Smirnov. Filled with raw intelligence, this resourceful young man finds ways to survive against all odds throughout the novel. The action is set in Russia, Germany and England. I was thoroughly entertained by the classic espionage plot and delighted by the character Alexsi whose exploits, risk taking and changing allegiances were exciting. Readers who enjoy character driven fiction, especially spy novels, are those most likely to enjoy reading this novel. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase A Single Spy from amazon.com.
