Book Notices | The Lies of Spies by Tim Tigner

Tim Tigner, The Lies of Spies

The Lies of Spies is the second full-length novel in Tim Tigner's Kyle Achilles series. The fate of the world is at stake again, and Achilles is just the right larger-than-life guy to set things right, this time with the help of Katya, his dead brother's Russian-born fiancĂ©e, whom he's been kind of shacking up with.... It's complicated. The bad guys have a super couple doing their dirty work, too, an Achilles-like he-man and his gorgeous Russian girlfriend. We kind of like them, as it turns out, which is good, because we read a lot about them: They could have a series of their own. Tigner's books are fun if a little forgettable. I had some trouble remembering what had happened in book one in the series, which I wanted to do so as to orient myself in this story. I guess I'd recommend binge reading these like you would a good TV show to keep things fresh in your mind. At any rate, this is a good escapist read.
