This is an unusual book that first establishes itself as a spy story and is quite thrilling. But half way in, the story changes to the Brittish intelligence officer's domestic and private sphere. There is a too long passage of some bewilderment and even disappointment but then the novel changes genre and becomes more of traditional romantic plot.
Narratological the text is full of enigmatic hints at the beginning, hints that become explained much later and makes the novel quite interesting from the point of view of "in medias res"-technique.
My three stars are quite mean; I guess you might like The Kissing Gates quite a lot!
