An easy and very quick review of this one. I fairly straight forward story from Higgins, who I have read several times and this is the first time I found lacking.
The story is set in Italy and Albania (I have no idea when this is set, but I think recently post-communist times). A UK secret service agent getting caught up in salvaging an icon that was being smuggled out of Albania in a crack down against the Catholic church. He gets caught, escapes, gets caught again, escapes again has to make his way home, nearly doesn’t then does!
Oh well…. onto the next book!
