Summary:

In The Miernik Dossier, international agents embark on a car trip in a Cadillac, traveling from Switzerland to the Sudan. Among them are an American operative; a seven-foot-tall Muslim prince; a beautiful half-English, half-Hungarian woman; a British national; and Tadeusz Miernik, the shy and bumbling Polish scientist who might be the leader of a terror force that could set the Cold War aflame. Related as a collection of dossier notes written by the five agents, the novel reveals a complicated web in which each spins his or own deception.

    Actually, maybe it was a genre thing. This book fits, in some general way, into the "spy" genre, but if you are reading it for the "thriller" so many spy books produce, you are about to be really disappointed. GREAT characters, wonderful narration, and a decent amount of detail make it tolerable, but not much more.

    It's very rare indeed that I not finish a book, but I couldn't even finish the first disk. It might be that I don't like this style, but I don't recommend this book at all. Where is got the 4 star rating, I don't know.

    The narration was great. The plot was ... not sure there was a plot. I like spy novels but this one just didn't have much to it. Honestly, if there was a plot, I missed it entirely. Didn't like the way it ended - not very satisfying. My advice would be to skip this one.
