    One thought on “The Reykjavik Assignment”

    1. Thriller set largely in NEW YORKThe Reykjavik Assignment is, despite the clue in its title, a thriller set largely in New York (to be precise for 332 out of 448 pages in the edition I read…). Not that this in any way detracts from a quite excellent, very well written, and exciting read – but it did leave me feeling a little short changed – given that TripFiction is all about location and I am our Iceland expert!Yael, mid 30s and ex Israeli Secret Service (but that is not generally known), [...]

    2. There are not many books that I can't get into but I'm sorry to say that this was one of them. It is not badly written and has some fascinating narrative of the world we live in today but It may be because it feels like all we are experiencing today. It's the world on the edge of a precipice l the intrigue of the current Presidency, the world powers jockeying of positions of power , the assassinations and intrigue. There were almost too many subplots and too many characters and then when the end [...]

    3. Beautiful written. Adam Lebor interest in the United Nations began in the early 1990s, when he discovered the Yugoslav wars as a journalist. Adam welcomes feedback from readers and replies to every e-mail. The book opens up Northern Syria. He dreams of death. The pistol's muzzle, warm and heavy against the back of his neck. The sweet reek of cordite. A millisecond of agony. Oblivion . The blindfold was ripped from his head.

    4. A good thriller with a good sense of history, but the Nook edition needs proofreading. Too many errors and some sentences didn't make sense. the Reykjavik Assignment deserves 4 stars for writing, but not for editing/proofreading - this is English literature, even though it's a thriller, and should be mistake free.

    5. I liked this book a lot, I thought it was suspenseful and complex. Just occasionally a little too complex for me. I didn’t really realise quite how political it would be before starting it, and I really struggled to follow bits of it. However, all was made clear at the end, and it was obviously well thought out work.

    6. Enjoyable read. I realised half way through that this is book 3 in the series, don't think it hindered my enjoyment though. Primarily the story is set in NY even though the title states over wise. Quite a quick read.

    7. The Reykjavik Assignment - Adam Lebor (The third book in the Yael Azoulay series of political thrillers).Yael Azoulay works for the United Nations as a senior covert negotiator for Secretary General, Fareed Hussein. Azoulay is tasked with brokering a secret meeting between American President Freshwater and her Iranian counterpart at the upcoming Reykjavik Summit. However, there are several vested interests who want to see those private talks fail and will go to any length to achieve that. Azoula [...]

    8. An international and up to date thrillerThis is my first introduction to this author even although this is the third novel featuring the heroine Yael Azoulay a UN covert investigator. Yael is in her mid-thirties and has spent most of her life becoming involved in the corridors of power and sorting out confrontations between various high powered situations in high profile countries such as Iraq, Syria and Iran.Unfortunately, as I have not read the previous two books it is difficult to fully follo [...]

    9. I seem to be going beyond the norm wth my recent reviews, but this is another that I ended up liking, a lot. It did take me a little than longer to captivate me, but once I could keep track of the characters, of which there are many, I enjoyed the action and I really enjoyed the main character, Yael. Not a feel good book, but action packed, and looking the U.N. without rose colored glasses.
