      “City of Exiles” by Alec Nevala-Lee, published by Signet Books.Category – Mystery/Thriller“City of Exiles” is a sequel to “The Icon Thief” but I found no problem in following the story even though I had not read “The Icon Thief”.Rachel Wolfe is an FBI agent that has been assigned as a liaison to a special department of the London Police Force. Her initial acceptance of the position was to further her career, although she now finds herself bogged down in a nowhere job and facing [...]

      This review first appeared at darrengoossens.wordpress/2014/12/29/the-plot-thickens-a-review-of-city-of-exiles-by-alec-nevala-lee/This is a high quality thriller. Like The Icon Thief it refuses to insult the intelligence of the reader, it has a likeable female protagonist, interesting settings, a good villain -- always absolutely crucial -- and is told economically. It plausibly conflates the real and imagined, and the research is good enough that there is no clear division between the two. A gr [...]

      Do not need to read the first book to enjoy this one. Fast moving. Definitely some loose ends that should bring on a 3rd book. Worth the read if you like intelligence capers.

      Agent Rachel Wolfe and her partner Alan Powell go to investigate the murder of gun runner. The murder is unusual because the chemical potassium permanganate is used to douse the victim and set him on fire. This method starts the investigation down the road of Russian Intelligence involvement. There also appears to be a possible leak within the department. Additionally, the Russian thief and assassin Ilya Severin, know as the Scythian, has successfully survived an attempted hit on him and is in L [...]

      I received this book for free from First Reads in exchange for a review.I hadn't read the first book in this series by Alec Nevala-Lee "The Icon Thief". So in the beginning I felt like I was catching up a little bit. However it was still fairly easy to read this book without reading the other, with only some references to the first book. The book is very fast paced for its size. It is an exciting thriller that presents two villains early on. And then another extremely surprising villain is intr [...]

      A complicated plot but one worth sticking with. An international thriller involving two foreign assassins , one RussianIlya Severin , and Lasse Karvonen, the Finn. Both are involved in several gruesome murders but they probably are working on different political agendas. Most of the action takes place in London, where the police are working with an American FBI agent, Rachel Wolfe. As first stated the plot has many parts and comes from slightly different angles before they all merge. The key mur [...]

      This murder mystery set in London England and Helsinki Finland got better and better throughout the novel. The novel centers around FBI agent Rachel Wolfe who is temporarily working with the British police services under Alan Powell. As they investigate the London death of a gun runner / machinist, signs lead to the involvement of Russian Intelligence involvement.Meanwhile a Russian, known as the Scythian, formally associated with Russian intelligence, has survived a plot against his life in Spa [...]

      God bless the mass market paperback shelf at the Kroger, because I’m not sure who else will. But this one was packed in there beside the covers with shirtless cowboys with Magic Mike abs, and it was a pretty diverting read of the international thriller variety. I found the characters and their arcs interesting enough, especially Wolfe and her lapse from Mormonism, and also enjoyed Ilya as a frustrated academic. I thought that some of the other characters were a little off the rack psychopaths, [...]

      I finally can make this review. I received an advanced copy of this book from a give away on , but unfortunately had some book club books to read first. The book picks up where "The Icon Thief" leaves off, so I suggest reading that first if you have not already. Unlike that book this one is set in London ant other places in Europe. I like how the characters are developed. The plot lines are good and the suspense is just right. Unlike some other books I do not find myself thinking just finish it [...]

      Second book by the author of The Icon Thief and I did no read his first book. For a book that is nearly 400 pages this book clips write along. The audience that would enjoy this most would be those into dirty deeds, international plots assassinations and bombing. The story centers around the civil and military arms of Russian security and the novel moves to many different locales. This kind of book is generally not my cup of tea but I liked it. So I imagine that those into the world of internati [...]

      I received this book as a First Read Giveaway, and really enjoyed it. There was an abundance of action taking place that kept my attention. It kept growing until the last 100 pages, when it really took off. My only criticism is the unresolved "mole" in the Task Force. You've got to wrap up all those loose ends!

    12. Batesharbuck on said:

      Okay, book 2. No wonder I couldn't figure out what was going on. I think the writer got a little too clever with the twists and turns of the intrigue, and left too many loose threads in the narrative. I may or may not look for book 1.

      Thanks for doing this giveaway, I am so excited to recieve and read this sequel. Thank you so much for the chance and as soon as I get this in the mail and read it, I will edit this and make a proper review. Thanks!

      Better than the Icon Thief. Just kept turning the pages and was sorry when it ended.

    16. Lee on said:

      this was a good read although I found the Mormon references gratuitous and added limited value to the plot. It's a good airplane or beach read - it will keep you interested throughout.
