Book Review: Hierarchies of Greed

Hierarchies of GreedHierarchies of Greed by Michael Patrick Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

During the Cold War a major London Soviet spy cell was blown, and both American Gerald Hammond and Russian Stanislav Paslov are investigating the leak, which may lead much higher up than anyone ever anticipated. Their unlikely relationship leads to a transnational investigation that will put both they and their loved ones in great danger. Both men of integrity, committed to their cause, they find themselves dancing with the devil they know and the devil they don't

An intriguing novel, well researched and characters developed, Hierarchies of Greed offers an insightful glance into Cold War politics and intrigue. I’ll be honest, it took me a while to get into it at the beginning, as spy novels necessarily must set the scene rather thoroughly and I got a little bogged down in the details. The glossary at the back was helpful, as I did start to get character wires crossed at first. However I thought as a whole it was really well written and the characters were compelling, and I have to admit I’m a sucker for historical novels. The plot leads you criss-crossing the ocean and second guessing your guesses as to who the real leak is. Looking forward to the next one!
