A nice book to read. Enough pages to keep me busy for a while, especially because I read it as a bedtime book :-)
Despite the interesting subject, after page 500 it became tedious and a bit less interesting than the first part of the book. ( )

The only thing to say about this novel is that plowing through it helped increase the amount of pages for reading statistics on GoodReads for 2016. ( )

Thriller about a cabal of former rouge generals bent on world domination ( )

Generals to revolt + control world

It begins in Geneva. There American lawyer Joel Converse meets a man he hasn't seen in twenty years, a covert operative who dies violently at his feet, whispering words that hand Converse a staggering legacy of death: "THE GENERALS...THEY'RE BACK...AQUITAINE!" Suddenly Converse is running for his life, alone with the world's most shattering secret. Pursued by anonymous executioners to the dark corners of Europe, he is forced to play a game of survival by blood rules he thought he'd long left behind. One by one, he traces each thread of a deadly progression to the hear of every major government—a network of coordinated global violence that no one believes possible. No one but Converse and the woman he once loved and lost. The only two people on earth who can wrest the world from the iron grasp of Aquitaine.

Interesting, fast paced, slightly on the paranoia side where x WW2 Generals try to takeover the world and a smart NY lawyer called Converse & some M15 agents save the day. Not totally unbelievable. ( )
