Having abandoned it, I was then unable to
look at my to-be-read pile without a guilty feeling, so I steeled myself and
tried again. The sub-optimal reading environment of the Underground provided a
good setting for something so Dan-Brown-esque (I haven’t found my adjective of
choice for the genre yet!).
As I said before, it’s a not terribly subtle thriller involving an ancient German dynasty, Nazis, retired USA Special Forces members turned booksellers… and Antarctica. Mostly everyone dies.
Finished with no great relish… ok for the Tube, but that’s not a terribly high standard.
