Kilo 17

A while ago the BBC made a brilliant program called SPY which unfortunately only lasted for one series. It involved a set of candidates being trained in espionage by three ex-intelligence officers, one of them was ex-MI6 and Customs and Excise officer Harry Ferguson. I have also seen Harry speak at the Oxford Union and he was very interesting to listen to so I was encouraged to read his book.

Kilo 17 is the story of Harry's first job in the Customs and Excise Investigation Division. The book is action packed and left me constantly wanting to continue to the next chapter; I pretty much read the entire book non stop. Knowing that it is based on real-life investigations makes the story even more exciting.

The main plot is intertwined with description of the changes Harry made because of his new job and how this effected his personal life. The book ends with Harry being promoted to a new team; a more exciting yet possibly deadly role that could also be the breaking point for his marriage. No doubt I will read this soon.
