Reading progress update: I've read 186 out of 316 pages.

Wallace at Bay (Wallace of the Secret Service) - Alexander Wilson

This is a lot like an Ian Fleming novel - without the sexism so far, but with added xenophobia. Yes, I believe that is possible.

 

There is even an American counterpart to the field agent.

 

I don't think I will be a fan of this series even if the covers of the books are just too fabulous for words.

 

There are two other books in this series on my Mt. TBR, which means that Wilson has two more chances to prove my first impression wrong.
