Thin characters, stretching credulity, even for a thrillerReviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 November 2012
Where Michael Dobbs blends fact and fiction, as in his Chruchill novels, the results are good, but this reads as if it was dashed off on the back of a particularly pungent Daily Mail editorial about the machinations of "Brussels". The swirl of different interests in the EU institutions provides promising material for a great thriller but this is not it. The very basis on which a renegade EU securocrat emabarks on a vendetta against the hero, Harry Jones MP, is absurdly thin, even granting the usual stretching of reality allowed to thriller writers, so although the story does crack along, the denouement is very unsatisfying as the explanation for the pursuit of Jones is so lacking in any credibility. Apart from the implausibility of underlying plot, Harry Jones does not elicit much sympathy from the reader in his fall from grace; for an ex-SAS officer turned MP and confidant of the PM, he is astonishingly naive and careless. You know good will triumph in the end, but will you care?

Amateur spy on Europe, more grief for HarryReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 April 2019
A likeable spy thriller that romps between Brussels, London and the home counties, and as Harry starts asking why a plane full of children is not by a missile an route from Brussels to London, his life spirals out of control, taking those dear down with him! Topical, entertaining, Dobbs weaves a good story.
Good read if you don't think about itReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 June 2013
I have enjoyed previous Michael Dobbs novels and was beginning to like Harry Jones but this novel is spoilt by weaknesses in the story. With his background, knowledge and experience including in the SAS, would you expect the central character to make the obvious mistakes that the story pivots on? Not once but several times. If you don't know about police procedures, you wouldn't have spotted another. Was this written in a hurry to meet deadlines? It's still readable and otherwise has a good plot but don't think deeply about it.

Brilliant and Well Told Tail of Derring Do!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 October 2018
A good old fashioned thriller written by someone who knew the territory political and geographical. Dennis Wheatley is in this somewhere too. My second Harry Jones in quick succession. The preceding novel had sat on my book case for a while next to House of Cards. I need to see now what happens to Harry ;-).
Not his bestReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 March 2017
This is the first book of Michael Dobbs I did not enjoy. Hard to get going until Harry Jones finally made an appearance. But the story was so involved that it became difficult for me to get to grips with it. Sorry Michael!
