Spy and Espionage. Robin Monarch is the CIA's top field asset. He is also an expert thief. Son of an American cat burglar and an Argentinian con artist, orphaned at thirteen, his is a character forged and hardened amid the ruthless slum gangs of Buenos Aires. During a field operation in Istanbul, Monarch uncovers evidence of corruption stemming back to the very top of the CIA and Congress. This discovery, project Green Fields, is enough to make him rethink his loyalties, and go rogue. An international crisis is sparked, with Monarch at its centre. Washington politicians, European criminals and Middle Eastern arms dealers are all hunting him, to force him to share his information, or to ensure his silence. Or, Monarch fears, both. To survive, Monarch will have to rely on a code he learned as a starving boy, orphaned and abandoned in the slums of South America. This code is the eighteen-rule-strong La Fraternidad des Ladrones, the Brotherhood of Thieves.

Pretty formulaic ... enough so that I put it down halfway through. There's a limit to the number of larger-than-life characters you can stuff into one action novel.

First in a series. No more for me. Lots of excitement, but it's all contrived. Wooen hero isn't a real person and most definitely not a "Jason Bourne for the new millennium" as the book's blurb gushes.

I usually love this kind of book and subject but I just couldn't get into this and found it quite unbeleivable. Had to let it go after the first chapter .

One of the worst thrillers I've ever read. Through half the book it was great, then the "defies-all-reality" events start to pile on. Barely managed to get through the rest of it, as even more preposterous scenarios ensue.
The blurbs on the back cover were by authors I enjoy (except James Patterson, whose disposable fiction has become too formulaic), so was disappointed how the plot developed.
