Book Reviews – “Traitor’s Gate” eBook was published in 2017 (original paper edition was published in 1969) and was written by Geoffrey Osborne. Mr. Osborne published six novels.
I received an ARC of this novel through https://www.netgalley.com in return for a fair and honest review. I categorize this novel as ‘PG’ because it contains scenes of Violence. The story is set during the late 60s during the height of the cold war. The primary character is British secret agent James Dingle.
Dingle, along with long time friend and partner Glyn Jones are sent to the Soviet Union to obtain copies of plans for a space based bombardment system. The mission seems to be going well until Dingle is captured by the Russians. he soon learns that he was betrayed by one of his team.
Will he be able to escape? Will he be able to bring justice to the turncoat?
I enjoyed the 2.5 hours I spent reading this Thriller novella. The story was clearly dated, but it still was a good read. I do not think the cover art adds much as the story had nothing to do with tanks. I give this novel a 3 out of 5.
