I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. My review doesn’t impact the book in any way, it’s just my thoughts.
Lee is known as many things. A con artist, master thief and most times smarter than anyone else in the room. One thing he’ll never be, is normal. He never has been, nor will he ever be. That’s why the agency needs his help, and that’s why he’ll give it to them, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have his own plans too.
Joining up with the team that arrested him won’t be easy, but he’ll do anything to bring down the man who ruined his life. After he’s worn so many faces, how does he really know who he is underneath?
Most teenagers have hobbies, his is crime.
So basically this book is about a kid- Simon Lee- who used to be an infamous thief who is now rotting in jail. And then some agents from a spy agency let him out of prison to help them steal this thing from the Pentagon.
I did enjoy the overall plot and characters, but there were a few issues. First of all, a lot of conversation. Like, probably 80 percent of the novel is conversation. Now, I don’t have any problems with conversation but in this book, it was a little suffocating. There was little to no description and for being a spy book not that much action.
Secondly, the characters. I had a hard time envisioning the characters, save for Winifield and Lee. I didn’t see any character development and the other agents were all carbon copies with a few tweaks.
But, there were a bunch of things I enjoyed.
The awesome plot twist at the end was pretty epic. And Lee’s escape scene was cool as well. Not mention the amount of sass Lee had inside of him. Great job P.D!
Have a lovely day and stay healthy!
