-Culture et Plaisir par la lecture
MY REVIEWGreenland Breach is a fast paced thriller about murder, the melting ice caps and former French intelligence officer turned spy,John Spencer Larivière . The writing is excellent. There is also plenty of action for those into action/ adventure and sci fi thriller! More than once, I thought I figured something out, but instead there was a major plot twist. This novel is not for the faint of heart!I love the mix of characters and the geopolitics at the heart of this novel. I give this novel 4 1/2 stars. I really want to read more Bernand Besson!
