A Lion in the Grass by Mark Zvonkovic

To start of this week I have the start of a three book series that I will be highlighting over the next month along with iReadBookTours. When I received this series in the mail, I was thrilled!

Book Description:
Set over the course of six decades, A Lion in the Grass documents the despair and hope of a spy who suffers the murder of friends and enjoys the success of mentoring protégés.

The story is told through alternative viewpoints of Raymond, his protégés, and the French villain. The novel digs deeply into questions of love, self-doubt and hatred, all foisted upon Raymond during a career from which, he discovers, it is impossible to retire.
The first thing that I noticed was the cover. You may think this is obvious but look close at the title. The O in lion adds a great detail to the cover. The book is just over 300 pages and spans six decades so it makes sense there are time jumps. Raymond (the main character) is an OSS agent in the war. He tells most of the story although some of the book is told from other characters POV. The book is different that a normal spy novel in that it is a slow burn. I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book in the series.
