Hoschouer, later reflecting on that day, thought he understood why the book held a special attraction for Hanssen. Not one of the characters was what he first seemed to be; all were secretly somebody else. There were other intriguing bits. Of Gabriel Syme, the first police detective introduced to the reader, Chesterton wrote: It never occurred to him to be spiritually won over to the enemy. In midafternoon, it was time for Hoschouer to head for the airport. He was flying to Phoenix to visit his elderly parents in Mesa, Arizona.

I think of this as a biography based on the stories of an older man told to a younger one.

Louis is but one of the many names this gentleman acquired over the years. He was born in Cairo and was groomed to be of service to the British Government. His life was never his own. His secrets many.

I enjoy biographies but this one was unique. It begins toward the end of life and then you see glimpses of the life that came before. Mr. Haines interjects the right amount of historical contexts and geography to make the reader feel as though he or she is there on the journey alongside the main character. I also enjoyed the little twist of fate at the end.

Warning: This book is for Mature Audiences due to violence, some adult language and a hint of sexual situations.

However, this book could have used a good proofreader. There were so many run-on sentences, and places where punctuation was clearly needed, that I found it more than a little distracting.

The writing is superbly descriptive and Louis' life was tragically wonderful. This is the first novel I've read by this author. It won't be the last. Highly recommended.

Alright, it started out a little boring, and it had a few boring parts throughout the whole book. The characters were alright but I thought a book about the life of a spy would be more interesting. There was not slot of adventure.

If you are looking for a high quality book, then look no further because you just found one. The author did an outstanding job writing this one, and he has obviously conducted quite a long and thorough research, to be able to describe so vividly and accurately events and facts from the early 20th century, in different regions of the world. To me that's a great bonus since I always find it interesting when historical events are seamlessly incorporated into the plot and are given a new angle of perspective.
The story itself is very well written and I found myself captivated right from the get go and all the way through, there isn't a dull moment in it, you are always kept involved and thinking. This book made a very enjoyable read.

Based in historical fact and accuracy, I found Louis by Derek Haines to be a very entertaining, thrilling read. The book takes the best attributes of writers like Ian Fleming, Louis L'amour and Dan Brown, and creates a unique blend of spy novel. I've been a fan of Haines work after reading one of his previous books, and continue to find his style fresh and exhilarating. The book is spot-on with dialog, characterization and plot, giving a wonderful glimpse into spying and intelligence during the previous century. Espionage, intrigue, nostalgia- this well-written tale delivers on many fronts. I look forward to reading more from this author. Five stars.
Sorry but this book didn't grab me. The story was quite interesting but I felt it a bit disconcerting, although understanding, with the hero changing code names so often. But then again I may not be that bright.
