A solid ending to this trilogy
This book is the 3rd in the Rho Agenda Inception series. It is the prequel to the Rho Agenda Series (Second Ship, Immune and Wormhole) which is a bit confusing as the name of the two series are so similar. You definitely should read this series first if you haven't already started the other trilogy as it will fill in quite a few gaps in the story.
Needleless to say this is not really a standalone novel and requires reading the other two books in this series first to get the most out of this novel. The action is fast and furious in this story and while it has some sci-fi elements it is primarily a spy novel. This is much different than the Rho Agenda series which is heavily sci-fi in nature. If you liked the other books in either series then you will enjoy this as well. Be warned if you read the Rho Agenda trilogy first that this one is much more adult in nature.
The novel ties up most of the loose ends for the series but leaves a lot of items open for future exploration (in a 3rd trilogy I'd imagine). MacLeod Andrews does a first rate job on the narrating the story. There are a lot of different characters and each is distinct and has a feel all its own.
This one is definitely worth a credit and I look forward to future novels in this world from the author.

Have listened to every book Mr Phillips has written. Wish I had read one or two in a different order though. Have listened to each book twice now with the exception of Dead Shift only because I just finished it.Totally hooked and waiting for more.
