While this is considered a classic of the spy genre and I have enjoyed the author's work before (especially Epitaph for a Spy) I had a hard time finishing this book. The writing style, which was pretty much flashbacks and info dumping, just did not engage me. I did think the overall plot was interesting and found the details of criminal activity in Europe between the wars fascinating though so the book was not a total loss.
