One thought on “Deep Blue

  1. Nigel Pinkus

    Well, it started of quite well with plenty of information on the back of the book to help the reader along but, that was where the problems seem to lay Judd s grasp of MI5 and MI6 was outstanding and the chatter between the two agencies was absorbing as was the flashbacks to the cold war days, but given what was on the back of the book and on the front cover, it wasn t too hard to figure out what was going to happen, well before the end Also, the story had a false finish to it which, if anything [...]

  2. Breakaway Reviewers

    Difficult to put down.Possibly one of the good things about not feeling 100% and being confined to bed for a couple of days, apart from catching up on lost sleep, is the ability to snuggle up to a good book and read without interruption Deep Blue is just that a good book which once picked up is difficult to put down.Parallels will inevitably be made with Le Carre which is a compliment to the author but this spy thriller is slightly less formal and injects a tone of self deprecating humour which [...]

  3. Ian

    Charles Thorougood, head of a depleted MI6 uncovers a cold war plot involving the mysterious Deep Blue being revived by a modern day anarchist group.What starts out as a LeCarre esqe trawl through a cold case involving old Soviet spies turns into of an action thriller towards the end The former part works better as the latter begins to stretch credulity a little, but nonetheless a book that keeps you hooked to the end.

  4. John Sklar

    Great story but parts were tedious and at one point I longed for the end Compelling story but possibly too small a story for a book Characters were thin and could have been so much interesting At times they seemed like comics I d like to see the movie because its hard to believe the story could be presented seriously The bad guys are just plain stupid and the good guys are driven by so many bureaucratic imperatives as to be almost frozen Not one I d recommend.

  5. Arun

    I wish I had not picked this book up on a vacation The plot builds up slowly, but never reaches a crescendo The ending is hurried, in an insanely stupid manner It s a bummer to be honest Strongly recommended not to read

  6. Mike Barber

    Started off ok but by half way I was wondering why I was continuing Simplistic in the extreme, ridiculous plot with one coincidence after another I shan t be reading another book by this author.

  7. Wilde Sky

    The head of MI6 investigates a potential terrorist plot The first half of this book was really good but then the plot became too far fetched too many co incidences and didn t have any real logic.
