What a thrilling read!!!

I'm not one to read books. It's likely my ADD, but who knows. And I'm not a fan of fiction (at least, I wasn't until just now). That said, I purchased a hardcover copy at the suggestion of a friend. WHAT A GREAT READ! I loved the twists and turns, and the way the story unfolded. When it first arrived I promised my wife that I'd have it completed within a month. That was met by a chuckle. I finished it in 4 days! I really enjoyed sitting down at the end of the day and getting wrapped up with Jack, Natasha, Sandy et al to see what could possibly happen next.

Lyntton has done a great job, and has helped me realize that reading fiction thrillers is not a bad thing (especially when I can tell much of the experiences of the characters were actually drawn from his own life story). Continued success to this new author - I look forward to reading Hyde Park Deception and the continuing adventures of Mr. Steele. It's due to arrive on Monday. Can't wait!

Complex intrigue

I read this in one sitting. Lyntton has hit many of the right marks for a political thriller and on a debut, I give it five stars. The triple crossing of the players was a little hard to grasp, but the action and pace got me over that. There were a couple of deus ex machina turns that might have been made unnecessary by deeper exploration of the characters. Going in that direction in the future installments will make the series great.

Very engaging thriller

This book is well written and researched based on the author’s personal experience. It is a great read with thought provoking subplots.

Richard Lyntton's North Korea Deception is riveting, suspenseful and relevant to current world events. This book is on order with Tom Clancy, Michael Palmer and Robin Cook. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read about Jack and Sandra Steel's next international intrigue adventure. Dr. Joe Lindsay Capt USNR-Retired

North Korean Deception is a winner

This is a great spy novel that takes the reader through Britain, Russia and both Koreas in a tightly wound thriller. A quick review of the author's background shows his intricate knowledge of not only these countries but also spy craft and the military tactics and hardware. My wife bought this for me for Christmas and we both read it and thoroughly enjoyed it. I recommend it without reservation.

British journalist Jack Steele investigates the disappearance of two United Nations officials.

Richard Lyntton's character Jack Steele collides with political rivals and puts him at the center of the conflict. Lyntton's look into international relations, or the lack thereof, puts the reader front and center to the action. Riveting, suspenseful, and also a personal look into Steele's life. You won't be able to put it down.
