Tibetan Cross by the Master of the Existential Thriller

3 Oct

Initially, I struggled with the flow of this book but finally surrendered to the style and wound up really enjoying the book. Tibetan Cross is less about Tibet and certainly not about any object – more about how the CIA functions in the world. Tense thriller, enormous attention to detail and place, hugely evocative POV from the protagonist. Some parts of the book were so intense that I could not read every word but skimmed along, like the literary equivalent of peeking at the film thru your hand…

I’m going to seek out and read other books by Mike Bond. Would definitely recommend this to fans of thrillers.
