Award-winning investigative journalist Paul Eddy wrote a number of non-fiction books, along with three novels, before his untimely death. Flint is his first work of fiction, but no reader would ever guess, given the level of skill on display in this well-written, tautly constructed, character-driven thriller.

I picked up a copy of the UK paperback version of this book here in Tokyo, in spite of the cover line comparing Grace Flint to Clarice Starling.

The writing of Paul Eddy is incisive and well-aimed. I picked up a copy of the UK paperback version of this book here in Tokyo, in spite of the cover line comparing Grace Flint to Clarice Starling. It is more true to say that Paul Eddy is writing in the tradition of John Le Carre.

Thus might Grace Flint, possibly one of the most intriguing heroes of recent thriller fiction, be characterized.
Grace is Detective Inspector Flint of Scotland Yard, assigned to the Major Crimes unit as an undercover operative. Three years previous, she got caught in a sting gone awry, during which her partner was killed and her face stomped to a pulp. Now, after extensive reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation, she's back on the job. While on assignment to America, she stumbles across the trail of the man, Frank Harling, who ordered her beating. It's becomes evident that Frank is now involved in an international blackmail and money laundering scheme masterminded by highly placed individuals in the West's intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Not knowing whom to trust, even within her own service, Flint goes underground to track Harling down.
There's actually a second protagonist in this plot, Harry Cohen, who's on an almost equal footing with Flint. Harry, a solicitor by profession, was once MI5's chief legal counsel, but was sacked after recommending against too many operations of dubious legality. Now, Grace's friends bring Cohen back to find Flint before she runs afoul of either Harling again or the criminal schemers within the Establishment that want her investigation stopped. But, are Grace's "friends" really her friends, or are they the Bad Guys?
Flint is fascinating because of the heavy load of emotional and psychological baggage she carries. There are, obviously, the aftereffects of her physical trauma manifested by her obsession with Harling. But also, as the storyline reveals, Grace's mother vanished one day when her daughter was but a young girl, apparently to foul play since the family dog was severely and deliberately injured in the same event. The woman was never found, not even her body. For a period during her adolescence, Grace actually thought that her veterinarian father had committed the murder, and had him investigated by the police - an investigation that discovered nothing. Because of all this, Flint is extremely vulnerable. Yet she remains smart, highly motivated, and terribly good at what she does for the London Metropolitan Police, i.e. being an undercover agent that can completely take on whatever role of the moment she needs to play. In that sense, she's a chameleon, both to her quarry and the reader.
As much as I enjoyed FLINT, I'm only awarding 4 stars because of a major loose end not tidied up at the conclusion - the question of her mother's disappearance. Perhaps the author means to return to the mystery in a sequel. Perhaps not. It seems too curious a thread to leave hanging, and I shall be sorely vexed if a following volume doesn't revisit the incident.

Story:

Grace Flint used be the best undercover agent that her department had. If you needed a tough street walker she was there. If you needed a high class woman of intrigue to plant a bug on a wheeling and dealing international business man she was who you called in. All that came to end one night on a case that should have been by the book, except somebody changed the rules and Grace Flint was caught on the receiving end of a takedown gone terribly wrong.

She survives, but the attack shatters more than just her face. The doctors put her back together but everyone knows that she has lost that instinct that made her the best at what she did. Finally after being shuffled from assignment to assignment she is sent to the U.S. to be a consulting agent on a money laundering case being run by her new boss, Paul Cutter. In a bold move Cutter assigns Flint to go undercover in the upcoming takedown of the man leading the money laundering operation.

Here in the most unrelated of cases Grace will find a lead on the man who shattered her life. Here she will start a journey of revenge that will take her from the banking havens of the wealthy to one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Here is where she will leave behind family, friends, and associates to find out if she still has what it takes to bring the guilty to justice.

-------------

This is one of the better thriller books that I have read in a long time. The action starts off a little slow but that doesn't last long once Grace finds out that she has a chance to find the man that derailed her life. If I have any complaint it's that sometimes the book bounces around a little too much and there is a certain side plot involving Harry Cohen and one of the main bad guys that seemed.... kinda stretched. I guess it was just used to illustrate the bag of worms that Grace opens when she starts to unravel the conspiracy. Other than that the plot moves fast and so do the pages. If you looking for a thriller that keeps you guessing and hero that doesn't quite fit the mold, then pick this book up for a entertaining read. I would recommend this to anyone who likes mysteries, thrillers and action books that don't rely on explosions to carry the story. M.a.c
