There’s a succession of splendid set-pieces, with Argylle doing everything from going undercover at a star-studded ball in Monte Carlo – where “the security guards … have necks as wide as the female guests’ waists” – to breaking into a monastery built on the sheer rockface of Mount Athos. The Cat Backpack - The cat is carried around in a very similar 'bubble window' cat backpack that Taylor used in her Miss Americana documentary to tote her cats around. But whoever the author may be, he or she has given us a straightforward thriller with none of the tricksy conceits of the film.

Don't expect a lot of romance or fantastic character development, because 80% of the book is only action.I'm willing to reconsider my rating and review after watching the movie that this book ties into, but for now it's two stars. Fairly sure it's just a marketing tactic for the movie, being 'written' by one of the characters and all. His lawyer explained that the Peaky Blinders actor was trying to please fans by “slipping into character” when he was caught in possession of cocaine. Until one moment of compassion and brilliance will bring him to the attention of the most powerful woman in the secret world.

There IS a lot of Taylor Swift coded clues or "Easter eggs" which are hard to ignore, I would be more inclined to believe that Taylor Swift may be cast as the last character introduced in the book (will leave the name out so you can all see for yourselves the link). Spy thrillers aren't my usual go to genre, but I wanted to read this as I am interested in the upcoming film based on this book.

If you want to improve your original movie’s changes, what’s a better bet than manufacturing your own IP for it out of whole cloth? His crash course in espionage will take him from the jungles of Thailand to the boulevards of Monaco, from the monasteries of Mount Athos to a forgotten cavern buried deep in the mountains. Communication with a publicist for Ballantine Books, the imprint publishing Argylle, went dead after the conversation turned to questions about the author. Her characters are engaging and multi-layered, with heroes readers can root for and villains they can detest. It was full of cliches and primarily a bunch of macho men chasing around flexing their muscles or their wealth.
