Billed as a spy novel set immediately pre 911 but it just doesn t live up to the hype A rather elongated plot based around a disjointed timeline and with large amounts of exposition together with masses of background on the history of Afghanistan make this a slow readThe narrative develops over a long period as a former British army officer is recruited and trained to destroy a bunch of US missiles in the possession of the Taliban in Afghanistan Lots of talk of Osama CIA MI6 and the shadowy Network but ultimately little of the context is resolved leaving an average adventure story
