A Masterly-Crafted Cloak And Dager Spy Novel!




If anyone asks me what kind of book I love to read, the first thing that would come to mind is thrillers––especially those set in World War II. This book ticked both boxes. London, 1942. OSS Agent Conor Thorn is desperate for a second chance. After a botched mission in Tangier, Thorn knows failure is not an option. When confidential directives for Operation Torch, the invasion of North Africa, go missing, the agent must recover the plans before the Nazis thwart the crucial mission. The Torch Betrayal is a high-stakes WWII thriller inspired by true events. I tend to make mental notes as I read any novel, and in this case, I made no exception. The first thing I noted was the amount of time the author must have spent with his research, which I applaud. This is backed up with the author’s detailed notes at the back of the book, which I found quite interesting. I have to applaud the author for his attention to detail. The Torch Betrayal by Glen Dyer is a masterly-crafted cloak and dagger spy novel, which I enjoyed immensely.  I look forward to reading the sequel.
