The Coldest Warrior: A Novel by Paul Vidich
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A CIA story based on a true story of cover up. When ever the CIA is mentioned you always picture the worst. Spying missions and assassinations immediately spring to mind with a liberal dose of foreign despots. The despots are not in this story however something equally despicable is, the US Government is conducting drug experiments on their own, but who? Jack Gabriel is suspicious and starts to investigate and build a case. I guess as this is based on true events the author has given himself a very narrow window to work in and as a consequence it has made not as exciting as you would expect. I found it dragged a little whilst the back story was told,which made it more predictable. It was not billed as thriller so I was not disappointed on that score, but a little more action would have helped.
