Jonathan Ransome is at once the unluckiest guy in the world as well as the luckiest. Unlucky to have met and married his wife Emma. Lucky to have survived the process and to have made it through two novels in one piece. (That gives away nothing of the story)
Having discovered that Emma is some kind of a governmental agent in Rules of Deception and accepting that they must be apart for a considerable time due to her activities, Ransome is a member of Doctors Without Borders who has been laboring in the hinterlands of civilization when he is brought to Paris to be the guest speaker at a medical conference.
It is not long after arriving in Paris that he meets up with Emma (as she had planned). However, her idea is for this to be a last farewell. Jonathan has other ideas and for the rest of the book he chases the ellusive Emma across many borders attempting to understand her true identity and prevent her from carrying out a mission that could have serious implications for world peace.
What costs this book a couple of stars for me is the Perils of Pauline nature of Ransome's adventures. Just before the train runs over him as he is tied to the tracks, SHAZAM...he is off in another direction time after time.
I can understand how some might find this to be the way they like a book to go and those that do have given this four and five stars. My wife liked it much more than I. So, either I am being too much of an old codger about this type of writing or perhaps I am on to something. You read it and and you decide. It won't be a waste of your time.
Amazingly deep research, detailed explanation of technical challenges. I had never learned as much from a novel. Mylar is being used to avoid IR presence detection of Emma while breaking in Robert Russell's apartment. I did not know Mylar is used for survival blankets.
Most thrilling science lesson I ever had.
