It 's been a long wait for new ook from Fergus McNeill, but ll good things ome to those who leave, some of us less patiently than others, and Ashes of America is a more than welcome return from this always excellent author ... From the outset this book ticked a huge quantit of boxes for me, with a split narrative set in post war 1950s Missouri, and also 1940s war-time Switzerland.

By pivoting us back to Rye 's clandestine activities in Switzerland during his army service, McNeill has achieved the not so achievable feat of presenting us with two seemingly unrelated narratives that mirror the energy and suspense of each other.As a fan of spy hrillers, and crime fiction, this provided a hugely enjoyable reading experience.
