Those of you who have come to expect the easy humour of John Corey in DeMille's books in the series by the same name, this book will come as a bit of a disappointment. That's not to say that Odyssey isn't excitingly assembled using the usual cast of nasties: Russians; KGBs; east block spies; traitors; crazy retired military types (no middle eastern terrorists though).
Although this novel is bit slow in getting off the mark (I almost hit the reset button on this novel) it does finally shift into high gear and deliver a good jolt of action. In total, not bad.

The book builds the reader up to expect a big bang only to end up with a disappointing fizzle. Erratic jumps in the narrative had me looking for pages I may have missed and it felt like this was an author's idea that was turned into a book prematurely
