Thriller set in SOUTH AFRICA and BerlinAgents Of The State is a really exciting espionage novel. It involves various branches of the South African secret service, plus the business empires of the country’s president and his son.There are several strands that all come together as the story progresses. In Cape Town, an attempt is made on the life of a rebel general from the Central African Republic. He lies in a coma in hospital, his daughter is killed in the attack, and his wife survives.

It's a while since I've been so confused by a plot as in Agents of the State. There appear to be several different threads to the story which seldom sit comfortably together. There are also a number of incidents which are simply red herrings.Agents of the State is set predominantly in South Africa but there are brief episodes in Amsterdam and Berlin.

Mike Nicol writes the best political thrillers in South Africa. His view may be sardonic, but these are good stories with characters you care about.

Ek dink dis my eie skuld dat die boek net 2 sterre kry. Ek het nie die vorige boeke in die reeks gelees nie, en dit het definitief veroorsaak dat ek nie alles in Staatsrotte verstaan het nie. Daar was niks fout met die skryfstyl nie, maar ek het wel gevoel die einde was so bietjie teleurstellend.
Enjoyed the urgent style of the prose and the pacing. Every now and then wanted to shout at one of the characters 'But you're a spy - why are you so complacent?!'
Overall a good read full of some nice twists, only the "child trafficking"-angle could be fleshed out a bit more than just a small plot device to bring Vicky Kahn to the story.
