A dissapointment. No action at all for a supposid spy thriller-maybe there was some in the last half, but I was too board to continue. Russian revolutionary history was a bit interesting.

I hadn't realized until reading the author's notes at the end of the book that this was the fifth book in a series of six. Obviously I had not read the previous four. And I'm not likely not going back to read them. Don't get me wrong, this is a very interesting read and I look forward to #6. It is just that going back to the first four now that I know how the Jack McColl series turns out.
As to the story of Lenin's Roller Coaster, the narrative is a very good telling of what was going on in Russia in 1917 when the Romanov government was overthrown. Reds, Whites, Czechs, Left Socialist Revolutionaries (LSRs), Siberia, Persia, Moscow, Petrograd and much more are woven into a compelling plot.
Downing is a really good writer and story-teller.
