This reads like an adolescent boy’s daydream. It starts off pretty well, with a well orchestrated kidnapping. (Although it never really explains why this band of mercenaries would undertake such a stupid act.) It deteriorates from there. The hero spends the rest of the book doing really stupid things and counting on the poor shooting of the supposedly best assassins in the world to miss. I’m not going to mention the absurdity of how they determine where the bad guys are. All this so the President can return to push the Green New Deal through Congress. If you like European scenery and hearing about incredibly lucky people in action, go for it. In spite of the endorsement, this guy isn’t in the same universe with LeCarre.
