This one was really good. A really fun spy romp with a bunch of misfits. Jackson Lamb deserves to be up there with George Smiley.
Brilliant book! I was trying to work things out all the way through (as well as laughing at the Boris jokes).

This book... this story...the writing... there aren‘t enough words to describe how absolutely beautiful this book was and how much I didn‘t want the story to end. Kate Quinn wrote an exceptional story laced with historical facts, filled with characters that felt so real. A great book club read.
