A Spy Came Home by H.N. Wake

A Spy Came HomeA Spy Came Home by H.N. Wake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book had it's attractions from the beginning - spies, politics, corruption and gun violence. A mix of subjects that for me were not going to disappoint. But after getting started I realised apart from being an entertaining book it is also very thought provoking. We all know how mad some Americans are about guns and the havoc they reek in schools, malls and theatres to name a few mass shooting locations. In the UK we are conditioned to abhor guns and their use as the laws are very restrictive on guns and their users, so when we are introduced to the Society For Guns, it is difficult to believe such an organisation even has a chance to influence government far less corrupt it. How much is fiction and how much is based on reality we do not know, but it does make you think. Once this is all mixed in with an ex CIA spy using their tradecraft to prevent the gun lobby from stopping the passing of a very important ban on assault weapons, HN Wake has delivered a very good book that not only entertains but educates as well.
