When I started reading this book I was really confused and found it hard to understand what was happening, the starting makes it sound like there is a funeral of some sort when in actuality it was just the main character (Danny Simon) leaving his current job as a spy. The death part the writer was trying to illustrate the death of a fake life which the main character had lived for many years. The writer gives good back ground into the inside of the main character and his state of mind, his emotions and what his craving for. I started to really enjoy the book when the character went on his assignment not as a spy of sorts but as himself in lebanon. I started to enjoy the twists and the turns, the writer portrayed it so well that though fictional you could relate to some personal turmoil Danny experienced. I will not spoil the end for you but will encourage you to check it out and make your own conclusion, I think because I love the books to be more romance erotica and spy ones to watch them as movies made it and added to my struggle to read this book to begin with but it was exhilarating and absolute fun once I got it. This was my first ever spy book but I will say my overall experience is/was not bad and I am happy to recommend this book to spy and/or political fanatics.
