Product description

Product Description

In the dark underbelly of covert operations, a group of mysterious killers wreaks havoc in the ranks of MI6.

It's the height of the Cold War, and an unknown team of assassins targets agents of the British Intelligence. In desperation, the agency sends in their best agent to hunt down the killers.

Jack "Gorilla" Grant isn't one of your typical secret agents. Uncompromising and rough-edged, he doesn't fit in with the elitist and debonair intelligence operatives. Drawn into a game where nothing is as it seems, Jack realizes that even the perfect spy can die in a wilderness of mirrors.

A Game for Assassins is an action-packed thriller played out across the global stage of the Cold War.

The author obviously knows his business and has written a great story.
I would have given it another star but for two passages, one towards the front and one the back where background history and related issues were so long and detailed that I lost the plot of the main story. Reduce those and the story moves along really well.

I have to admit that spy thrillers aren't one of my preferred genres I find all the twists and turns of books like the Bourne Identity too confusing but this book by James Quinn has been an enjoyable thrill ride. James takes us on a journey as we follow two assassins as they complete their hits and the intelligence officers sent to stop them. The action is fast paced and nail biting and the twists well written and not too contrived. I'd recommend this if you'd like a gentle but powerful introduction to the genre. You won't be disappointed.

The subplots twist and turn skilfully and the characters are not made romantic - they are honestly flawed human beings.

2.0 out of 5 stars Certainly a waste of my time. 16 March 2016
By Pat Sibley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I did read the whole book, but I wasn't thrilled by it. The author could have benefited from a good editor; I skipped whole pages without it screwing up my understanding of the story. The lack of punctuation was also disturbing--there was hardly any commas in the story, and I found myself re-reading lines to figure out what exactly he was trying to say. Typos were also a problem which got worse as the book went on. The author used the word 'reigns' when he meant 'reins'. The book was going on at a good clip when it suddenly veered into a side story (which could have been a novel in itself), then did it again near the end. Frankly, I felt like I wasted my time.

Perhaps the 1st 5 star I have given in the past 4 years. I feel most ratings are too high. I had a hard time putting this down from day 1 until I finished it and for me that is a rare thing.

I enjoyed reading this novel and learned a few things about spycraft, given the author's background. Some typos appear, and there is a bit of historical background but it does not detract from the plot. Recommended for those who like action.

The blurb that got me to buy this book was better written than the book itself. The plots and reason's why' all the assassinations happen are very slow to develop, so at times I almost ready to delete it from my kindle.
