    One thought on “The Alamut Ambush”

    1. 3.8 Not a bad read, well written and interesting story. Maybe a bit dated. Might be tempted to read another of his books.

    2. This book is the second in a series that came highly recommended by a friend. The first was OK -- found the style overbearing and tiring, but enjoyed the plot, so I thought I'd try the second. The style is still overbearing and tiring, which also describes the plot. I kept reading it because the ending of the first book, The Labyrinth Makers was interesting and one of things I liked about it. In The Alamut Ambush, the ending was complicated and badly explained. This is last I will be reading by [...]

    3. Calling these novels spy "thrillers" is really a bit of a misnomer. There's not really a lot of technical "thrills," in the classic car chase / gunplay / explosions sense. (For example, this novel really only has two explosions.) While not really "thrilling," they are a compelling read, if only for the manner in which Price slowly reveals characterization and plot points. Like the cliched onion, layers are slowly pulled back until the plot and motivations are revealed, mostly through dialogue an [...]

    4. Anthony Price has again brought together that mix of history, analysis, adventure, international espionage, misadventure, that has made the adventures of David Audley and company a personal favorite. I believe with regret that with this volume I have completed the entire cycle. However, the paean to the Short Magazine Lee Enfield rifle appearing near the end of this book was a more than satisfactory conclusion to the sagas - that with regret end for me.

    5. Not the best of the Anthony Price thrillers. The history link is tenuous in this one, but still a gripping read. Probably should be 3.5 stars because I do reread it occasionally, but not one of the regulars.
