    This is another proper spy book And it starts by stating the obvious There's a traitor in the MI6 and now we follow a bunch of characters around trying to figure out who among it is You know the players you know what they do and you suspect every action As typical of the genre of that type there's a lot of geo hopping something that James Bond established in the previous decades so you need at least a dozen exotic yet weird locations to support the plot This was before you could go on Google Maps and see what gives for yourselfWe will also get to see the charming Tweed character in several other books All in all laid back rainy Sunday kind of thriller book the modern day euivallent of Poirot's mysteries Wossname You get the ideaThere was a man named TweedDouble agents he set to misleadAbout faceNational disgraceFor hunting spies was his creedCheersComrade Igor McTrustyface

    A forgotten gem of a thriller Colin Forbes has done it again though I did notice that it had a bit of language The others I have read had practically none at all I can't wait to read another murder mystery from Forbes

    A really good old fashioned cold war thriller Took me right back to the mid eighties and was especially weird as it had some genuine real life political characters from the time although reading it knowing what we know now made it strange at times and the author was clearly caught up in the fear of the time and clearly nails his colours to the mast of which side of the east west divide he was a part of I’m not sure history uite views Gorbachev in the way Forbes did at the time For me it was personally interesting as at about the time the book was written I lived in Kings Lynn where part of the book was set and I stayed in the hotel that the main character Tweed stayed in I also made a trip to Scandinavia and went on the hydrofoil between Copenhagen and Malmo also mentioned Until recently I hadn’t read any Colin Forbes books since the eighties so it really was a blast from the past and I enjoyed the book because of thatI have always like Colin Forbes’s cold war books featuring Tweed and his team although I don’t always find them brilliant and think he sometimes explains things and characters too much and spells out the same thing again and again which can me monotonous at times The ending in this one was particularly weak and came as a bit of an anti climax

    'Janus Man' is the fourth in a series of 'Tweed and Co' It's another cold war plot of spy versus spy This is the first time I've seen Spymaster Tweed come out from behind his desk and work in the field A man with a cold heart he can also show weakness The author has a substantial knowledge of the geographical landscape of his story He's as good as a road map I find his character descriptions a bit too much Each character mentioned is followed by a complete paragraph for a description right down to the color of socks It is obvious he has a fascination for women's legs it's a good story not much of a suspenseful ending with a few threads left dangling

    Not bad Only my second Colin Forbes book I was looking for something akin to John Le Carre This was sufficiently rich with geographical and procedural detail and to hold my interest without any of the characters being excessively macho a common flaw I find in 70's and 80's books of this type Tweed isn't as likeable as perhaps George Smiley but he's not a complete arsehole either Next up Deadlock

    SPOILERS Exciting fast paced and confusing but with a weak and unsatisfactory ending Forbes used some of the plot tropes in The Stockholm Syndicate In hindsight Forbes’ characterization of Gorbachev as a criminal mastermind is ridicolous

    Re reading the Tweed an Co series at the moment and have now completed #4 Janus Man In this book we are introduced to one of the characters who will become a mainstay of the series Paula Grey although in Janus Man she is a peripheral character We also see Newman start to take a much larger role in the work of SIS This time Tweed is trying to chase down and identify which of his newly appointed 4 section chiefs is really a double agent As usual the plot moves through Europe this time focussed mainly on Germany both West and East and for the first time we meet Khulman of the German police who becomes another regular in the series There is the normal plethora of information and suspects who provide a vast amount of information and red herrings and Tweed works tirelessly to make sense of it all A big climax complete with chase across a desolated landscape and large even James Bond esue explosion Next up Deadlock
