On the heels of Once a Spy, which PW hailed as a "wildly original debut [with] an action-packed story line," Keith Thomson returns with a breakneck thriller that's twice as explosive as the original. In the tradition of Robert Ludlum, with a witty twist, Thomson's second novel featuring a former spy and his son once again poses the question: What happens when a former CIA agent can no longer trust his own mind? Charlie and Drummond Clark are now in Switzerland, hiding out from criminal charges in America and using the time to experiment with treatments to retrieve Drummond's memory. When NSA operative Alice Rutherford, with whom Charlie has fallen in love, is kidnapped, the Clarks must dodge a formidable CIA case officer and his team to get her back.From the Hardcover edition.

This book is a sequal and should be read after first reading Once a Spy. The general story is a creative take on the standard superspy who cannot fail by giving the spy Alheimer's disease and having his son get caught up in both taking care of his father as his memory worsens and having to learn to deal with the insane level of violence in his father's espionage world. You will not get it if you don't read the first book.

I didn't get this book. It launched into a story without a pre-amble, or any lead in. It was like a conversation midway, where you knew neither the people talking, or the subject of the conversation.

I kept going back to the front of the book to see if I missed something.

And then it just wasn't that interesting - the characters were odd, and kept mentioning how little they knew about each other, which was unusual considering how much they sacrificed to help each other.

I've read books that were trickier, but they kept my interest. This book didn't.

I should note that spy-novels aren't my thing, so take my review with a grain of salt.
