While giving Agency Rules – Never an Easy Day at the Office, Tony Parsons awarded 5 stars. Tony had this to say about the novel:
“Prime Minister Azam Shah the typical politician was on a tour of the children’s hospital was at press conference & asked what the Muslim League government was doing about rising crime rate in Karachi. Quick responses defending the government & on to the next agenda.
Their policy was for the law enforcement agencies (political leadership, police & paramilitary forces) to take & pull out all stops on the miscreants (criminals, terrorists), but not was being done to curtail criminal activity.
A joint cabinet meeting was being held. Captain Dawood starts his new job (Protocol) & is friends with Kaleem, & his host, Imam Shahid.
Who will be the new Prime Minister of Pakistan? Which side is Captain Kamal Khan (a.k.a. Dawood Islam) really working for? Who really assassinated Prime Minister Azam Shah? What will happen with/to Faheem? Will Sheikh Atif & Mufti Fazal be brought to justice?
Cool book cover, font & writing style. A great covert operative, torture, politics, military meetings, & foreign dignitaries. A duo spy suspense filled detail oriented excellent written book. Most of the time easy to read/follow, never a dull moment. Lots of surprising twists/turns. No grammar errors, or out of line/repetitive sequence sentences. Lots/lots of unique set of characters. Could be the makings of a spy movie (the Spy who came in out of the cold), or a TV series. I will easily give this book 5 stars.”
