The story begins at a blistering pace right from the first page, with a young conspiracy theorist recording a CIA black operation on camera. What he believes would be the start of his youtube channel transforms in the blink of an eye into a game of cat and mouse, dodging bullets as an armed assassin are hell-bent on him destroying the footage at any cost.

Even before you’ve had time to change your reading position, the author plunges you deep inside the unforgiving walls of a black military site where we meet CIA Walter Sharp softening a suspect delivered to his facility hours earlier. Sharp’s instincts tell him that all isn’t as it seems with the prisoner, and during the questioning, the prisoner makes a shocking confession which triggers a series of chain reactions.

There is something awful at the heart of British political space that’s infiltrated the M16 as well as the GCHQ. Something so powerful that a few people in power are will to call an attack at the heart of British politics to keep their secrets guarded.

While most of the press obediently believe what has been said by the political public relations, Novak and Mitchell are keen to observe several discrepancies and coincidences that the security agencies are trying to keep under the carpet. Their amateur investigations bring them to the attention of a lethal political enterprise with everything at their disposal to protect their interests. Before long, the two reporters find themselves hunted through the streets of Washington and London as they fight to collect the evidence needed for their expose.

Their quest for the truth is aided by Rebecca Fox, a talented GCHQ analyst. Official Secrets is undoubtedly well-researched with a dash of sassy humor.

Limits of the World

This book is set in North Korea, formally known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The story centers around Han, a party official tasked with guiding foreign tourists around the Pyongyang and the surrounding areas.
Han is a collector and dedicated reader of banned books. When he encounters Mae, the two create a bond, and they begin attending a secret book club together, which eventually leads them down a dangerous path.

In North Korea, any literature not written by or about the leadership of the country is banned. Any book that doesn’t focus on the rise of the Party or that does not glorify the rise of Kim’s power is banned. This makes it difficult to imagine the other, whether the other is a place, person, or time.

The story takes place at the end of the Kim Jun-Il era, and Han finds himself guiding two western tourists through the Korean Capital. What he doesn’t know is that the two tourists have a secret of their own.

The author also does a fantastic job in creating two believable western journalists trying to infiltrate and expose the dark side of DPRK.
