Bloodmoney: A Novel of Espionage
Bloodmoney: A Novel of Espionage by David Ignatius

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t usually read spy novels, but the plot for this one sounded intriguing. And I was captured by the idea of a lead female character. I wasn’t disappointed.

I read the ebook version of Bloodmoney. Fiction is probably the easiest kind of ebook to read because there’s no expectation of clickable notes, links that work, or even a table of contents, although this novel had one. It was a speedy read in some ways in that the action or feeling of action never stopped. Even in the slower scenes, the sense of anticipation, the suspense kept the tension up. However, it took me a week to read — it was longer than I’d realised. Ebooks give you no visual sense of how big a book is!

I would read this author again, although it would depend on the plot. But if I liked the sound of the plot, then I would know it would be a good book to get lost in.
