    The Suicide Club Comment

    1. This was an exceptional spy novel, one of the best I have read in some little time Alan Furst, but set in WWI Very well researched, convincing and atmospheric I do not often stay up late with a book, but I did with this one.


    2. This is a spy story set in the First World War with a heroic main character who manages to finish through after being buried and shot at The plot centres on Innes a Scottish Roman Catholic being sent by the politicians in London to spy on their generals in Belgium and why they are getting it wrong Innes becomes entangled in espionage and counter spies at the front line.The misinformation being fed to Douglas Haig, who optimistical accepts it.The way soldiers were seen as expendables, a victory w [...]


    3. I really didn t enjoy this book I can t put my finger on why it has all the trappings of my favourite novels, dancing over that fine line between fiction and reality during WW1 I think perhaps the density of information in this novel did not leave room for 3D characters, and too much was crammed into its pages.


    4. Note I have given this book 5 stars because of the low rating it has received on It deserves far than a 3.43 rating.The best part of this book is how Andrew Williams ratchets up the tension as his hero, World War I British soldier turned spy Sandy Innes, searches for a double agent behind enemy lines Innes, known as Lazarus , because he was brought out alive after being buried for days in the mud of the battlefield, is working for Britain s new Secret Service and has been setting up a network o [...]


    5. This novel is very well written, and shows careful research which makes it effective in the art of the historical novel it reproduces the past.However, although I admired the author s scholarship and literary skills, I did not admire much else, and I ploughed on through the novel with little enthusiasm I felt that it did not succeed as a thriller there were just too few thrills Also, I do not really agree with the historical interpretation offered by Andrew Williams He takes up the interpretatio [...]


    6. August 1917 Britain is mired in bloody stalemate at Passchendaele and the prime minister is looking for someone to blame Soldier spy Sandy Innes is seconded to Haigs headquarters officially to train a new espionage group called The Suicide Club, unofficially to spy on the field marshals staff Innes soon discovers few at HQ trust the top secret information being fed to Haig by his intelligence chief, and as he digs deeper he begins to suspect treachery The stakes could not be higher the fate of h [...]


    7. Very informative book obviously well researched However, I never got inside the main characters and felt no emotion when, for instance, a key person is killed Neither did I feel the race against time making my heart beat faster and so on In fact, I ve enjoyed this book almost as if it were non fiction.


    8. Interesting book about the role of British agents and collaborators in WW1 Gained an insight into the decision makers at the time of Passchendaelee arrogance is unbelievable.
