    One thought on “Schism”

    1. I owe it to Pierce Brosnan and my insatiable man crush on him for discovering this so far fantastic series (he starred in, and I believe produced, a movie adaptation of the seventh November Man book). Granger's first book had all the hallmarks of a first novel, such as rough writing, a plot that reads as if it was made-up as it went along, and one-note supporting characters; there was, however, enough good and enough avoidance of stock spy novel cliches that I thought it worth continuing with th [...]

    2. Another brilliant November Man novel by Bill Granger! This is my first read of 2015. If I had finished it a few days earlier, I would have rated it one of the best books I had read in 2014. This is the second novel in the November Man series and I think the best I have read so far in that series. I still have another four to go. Granger's skills at character development and complex plotting are exceptional.Father Leo Tunney, a Catholic priest who had been sent to Laos more than twenty years ago [...]

    3. Devereaux fits the picture of the best agent. Physical where necessary but first and foremost excelling at the intellectual level.

    4. My brief enthusiasm about having found a new (at least for me), exciting spy series is already on the wane with this second entry which seems more than a Church thriller (nothing wrong with that as such) than an espionage romp. Problem is that for most of the first half nothing much of any danger seems to happen, such one expository scene after the next. And the final revelation is pretty much a not very exciting anti-climax. Ok read. May give this series one more chance but will probably wait a [...]

    5. Schism is the second book in the November Man series. I am totally enamored of this series and have a great appreciation for this sub-genre of thriller, an espionage story. I received a copy of Schism from Netgalley, which rocks by the way. I love this series enough that if it exists on audiobook I will be reliving it again and buying them. When I learned that this series started originally in 1979 I wondered how it was that I had missed them all these years. No worries I have found them and pla [...]

    6. One of the most original and unusual spy novels I've ever read. Father Leo Tunney walks out of the jungles of Cambodia to the US embassy in Bangkok. He's been gone for twenty years. The CIA holds him incommunicado, then lets him go to take up residence at an order in Florida. Suddenly, agents from several intelligence agencies are in the area. From the Vatican, the Soviets, the CIA, and an unknown fourth group. Also in the area is The November Man from R section. Why so many spies in one area al [...]

    7. I had forgotten how beautiful good spy novels could be until I pulled this book from the past. I think I had read it decades ago, but after all that time I didn't remember any of the critical details. Granger does more than tell a good story. He does so with exquisitely rendered sentences and paragraphs. The beauty of his writing is almost as much fun as the story itself. I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys this genre.

    8. Overlooked series by a former Chicago Sun-Times columnist. The November Man hails from a secret intelligence agency buried in the Department of Agriculture and designed to keep an eye on those responsible for the Bay of Pigs and other fiascos. A long missing priest wanders out of the jungle and into the U.S. embassy in Laos. The CIA, the Soviets, the Vatican and, of course, the November Man, all take an interest. Entertaining spy thriller.

    9. The first 75-80 pages felt like an editor would have come in handy but then the action kicks in and you see why all that set up was necessary. This was an exciting novel and never felt flat after those first hundred pages or so. I will continue reading Granger's November Man series. They are just great to read.

    10. Father Leo Tunney has been missing for 20 years and presumed dead. When he shows up at the US embassy in Bangkok it makes world headlines. When a reporter scoops his story, her apartment is ram sacked and she is advised to drop the story. Father Tunney has to make a decision about the knowledge that he acquired while missing.

    11. Another solid Devereaux adventure in which the series' protagonist is more a 'bit-part' player in the mission. Still a good read and the plot is better than the original novel, though Devereaux is the man that keeps the interest for me.

    12. The villain and plot remind me of Fleming's earlier works; especially Dr. No. A great series that hides its age well.

    13. This was a good spy book, stuff I liked to read when I was younger. Granger does a good job of keeping up suspense, and keeping you wondering what's going to happen next. Overall an enjoyable read.

    14. The second in Granger's November Man series, I thought it was even better than the first--and I thought the first was superb! I'm going to stick with the series for now.
