|John Dashwood is a retired British Intelligence agent. He is called back to temporarily replace the director of Ghost Station and to supervise one last mission. But half-truths and manipulations puts the mission and the lives of its agents at risk.
What motivated me to request this book for review was the blurb. It seemed interesting and I don't read many spy thrillers so I decided to give a chance. It was the best decision I ever made. Ghost Station has a clever plot, full of action, that that captivated me and made it nearly impossible to put the book down until I finished. I was completely immersed in the story. It was interesting to follow up with the story unfolded. The lies, manipulations that the characters used to get what they wanted. An intelligence agency using another to achieve their goal. And how a spy's life is lonely. While you have to trust that your partner has your back, you also have to be suspicious of everything and everyone. It was fascinating.
Ghost Station is above all a spy thriller. But it has a love story between two agents as subplot. So if you want to read this book, you have to take that into consideration. The romance is there, you can see the relationship between Rick Wentworth and Harry Tilney evolving from partner to something more while they struggle to fulfill its mission. But is not the main story.
