Night Heron

night heronThis from the inside cover;

“Set in China, and ripped from today’s headlines.  Night Heron is a pulse-pounding debut that reinvents the spy thriller for the 21st century, by an author who has experienced it firsthand.”

There is a lot of truth in that statement, but it was written by the publisher and while I found the novel entertaining it was not “pulse-pounding” as advertised and I am not sure that author Adam Brookes reinvented the spy thriller for the 21st century unless you consider the fact that China is the enemy the invention.
