Rising. David Downing reprises characters Jack McColl and Caitlin Hanley from Jack of Spies for another spy novel set in the early twentieth century and titled, One Man’s Flag. Jack goes from India and its troubles to Ireland and its troubles, close to the time of the Easter Rising. Fans of spy fiction and historical fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy this novel and this series. Love and betrayal take many forms, as does loyalty. Downing explores those themes and others with great skill while providing readers with an entertaining plot.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
