Reading progress update: I've read 245 out of 360 pages.
The Suicide Club - Andrew Williams

things suddenly got very tense for our hero Innes--brazenly following someone, right into occupied Belgium, on the fly, without papers or a proper cover ID and story, all to unearth the truth behind Faust, Faust's true intent. helped by a priest risking his own neck to get Innes (Lazarus) linked back up with his old spy network, the road leads to Antwerp... and veteran spy Ramble. turns out she and Innes have an interesting history.

 

I love this book. must keep the eyes peeled for more spy-jinx set during World War One.

I'm happy--it's a terrific read, with an atypical plot, and feel, compared to most wartime espionage fiction. it's not action-oriented, but that hasn't mattered at all. I feel for Innes; he really has qualms about spying within his own ranks. he'd rather be back in occupied Belgium, sticking it to the enemy. at least being honest has gotten him into trouble and got him shuttled off to the Netherlands...still poking at internal matters, though, not thrilled with his lot in life. bonus: there's a bit of a Murder Mystery running!

when asked by Haig on horseback if the Suicide Club is ready for action, Innes lies and says "Yes.". meanwhile, Ramble--betrayed and on the run due to some kind of leak in the Belgium network--finds out that the chief German interrogator/torturer of Ramble's captured compatriots is like her, a woman. "Not like me," says Ramble. so, some great female characters emerging in this World War One spy epic...and plenty of people who may not be what they seem; may Innes sniff them out before it all dooms the Suicide Club.

it's pretty cool so far! I like Innes, especially his scruples, his careful reads of people around him; that should help him, since he's been assigned to not only join 'The Suicide Club', but also, spy on it. this special new branch of Military Intelligence may have secrets, secrets resulting in unreliable intel. this is an interesting premise...a spy recalled from his success as an agent in an Occupied country, and reluctantly tasked to infiltrate a network of his own people. hmmm. I like it. and, no idea where this is headed. first, my big love for Suicide Squad (gonna do the Rebirth graphic novel very soon...I miss Deadshot too much, it's been too long), and now I'm hangin' with the Suicide Club. wonder who can't be trusted (that's a familiar thought, with these teams...).

Elektra next, for sure (honest, Elektra!--please don't sai at me), and then this promising Spy tale set during World War One.
