This book describes Adam's early years and the reasons why he became a spy with Israel's Intelligence org. called Mossad and then MI-6. It is written through the eyes of Harry Pearce who was clearly quite fond of his late colleague. Harry was able to explain Adam's life from a child to a young man because, fortunately Adam's mother saved all the letters he wrote to her and to other friends and acquaintances. There are many twists and turns in Adam's life that inevitably brought him to MI-6 and explains why his life would have ended so early while in service to MI-5.
I look forward to the possibility of a sequel which would explain Adam's personal life after joining MI-6, and the years of service prior to joining MI-5. I want to better understand what made him take the chances in life he did, even after becoming the sole parent to his own son, Wes.
