Kennedy 35

I thoroughly enjoyed the other two books in this slick spy procedural. Its USP is the split time line, splicing events between the younger days of its protagonsit Lochlan Kite (a cool name) and his more experienced self in the present day. It makes for all sophisticated and interesting story in an ocean of spy novels. The meticulous and functional brevity of Charles Cumming’s  writing style oozes proficiency and mirrors the slick style of his characters. Although the over-arching concept of a secret spy agency above even MI6 and the CIA is a bit far-fetched and fantastical (maybe even a bit juvenile!) but he somehow manages to pull it off and it makes for a really good read in my opinion.
