Deceit. One of the reasons that I enjoy reading spy novels is for the creative ways in which secrets are kept and revealed. Charles Cumming maintained my enthusiastic interest in his treatment of deceit in his novel titled, The Hidden Man. The action centers around three members of the Keen family: father Christopher, and sons Mark and Benjamin. Deceit involving each of these men led to dramatic consequences. Cumming’s prose maintains suspense throughout the novel and his writing should appeal to any reader who enjoys spy fiction.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
