Présentation de l'éditeur

Devereaux. Codename November. A brilliant, lethally cool operative,


he was years ago regarded as one of America's most valuable security


assets.



Now courted by the KGB and under threat from the CIA, Devereaux must


foil the planned assassination of England's richest man and it's prime


minister in a treacherous war of shadows on the Irish Sea.



Devereaux is both target and triggerman, pawn and master player, the spy


who can never come in from the cold...



'America's best spy novelist' - Ed McBain

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the best series no one knows about 26 février 2006
Par Christopher Gwyn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Meet Devereaux.Covert operative from the top secret R Section.An intelligence agency founded by President Kennedy after the CIA botched the bay of pigs operation.R Sections function is to essentially spy on the spys.After receiving orders to go to England to meet with an informant demanding 30,000$ for information about an alleged plot to assassinate a high ranking member of the British Royal Family, the reluctant Deveroux is drawn into a complex web of deceit,treachery,and inter-agency backstabbing of the most lethal varieties.A no nonsense character, Devereaux has many enemies{or are they friends?} to contend with, not least of which is Soviet agent Desinov who always seems to appear at crucial times.Who are the plotters of the assassination and what are their motivations? Is it the IRA, KGB, CIA, or some other unknown entity? The story unfolds with brisk pacing and an exceptional feel for the dialects of Ireland. The concept of the upstart R Section is an interesting one for it makes for natural intrigue and suspense.Who are the good guys and who are the villains? The line is most assuredly blurred.Author Bill Granger invests his protagonist Devereaux with an angst and cynicism that can only come from having been in the game for many years. I loved this book and I guess others did too, because there are about a dozen in the November Man series. It just surprises me that no one had given an Amazon review until now. Bill Granger deserves a place along with the likes of Robert Littell and Tom Clancy at the forefront of American espionage fiction authors.In closing I just want to thank Mr.Granger for the best series nobody here ever heard of.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 WARNING - I bought the November Man, and got the 7th book. Not the first book in the series. 22 septembre 2014
Par Joshua H. Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I see Hachette is re-releasing the series due to the movie. I bought this book thinking that it was the first book in the Series, because the first book was titled "The November Man". This book is actually the seventh. I read the whole book, then went looking for # 2 to find out I was behind. I'm now on #5 (The Zurich Numbers) and they are all fun easy reading spy novels. You can read this book without reading the six that precede it though. Good news for someone that just wants to read one. But now that I'm 6 books in, the author reintroduces each character in each book like they're new. You are rewarded with better understanding to the background biographies, but it doesn't add to each book much.

Good read, introduced me to the author, and am enjoying the series.

The seventh book was originally titled "There are no Spies", but is now re-titled "The November Man" to match the movie.
The first book has now been renamed "Codename November" but was originally titled "The November Man" just to confuse everyone.

So if you want to read the 7th book, the one that is the basis for the movie - Buy this book.
If you want to start at the 1st, buy Codename November.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 RIP, Bill and Devereaux 7 mai 2012
Par Edmund WaldronJr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
As the first of thirteen books in the November man series, fans were left thirsting for the character of Devereaux, and I must admit I see certain parallels between Hanley and Irene Kennedy, Rita and Anna Reilly, and, of course, Devereaux and Mitch Rapp. Fans of the genre will know what I mean. I searched for years for the next installment, only to learn in Bill Granger's obituary this morning of his deteriorating health over the past many years. I salute you Bill, and the wonderful characters you cultivated for your fans. I extend my condolences to your family, and will forever cherish the day I discovered the November Man.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Anti-Bond 30 décembre 2006
Par Yazupstairs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The November Man is on of the best series I have ever read, and yes, I have read the masters as well. Deveraux is the tormented soul, deeper than Bourne ever was, cold as ice and not because he wanted to be. You feel for him. You root for him and you cry for him. The writing is sublime. I wish there were more. I am sad to hear that Mr. Granger (former Chicago Tribune journalist) suffered a stroke and lost a lot of his memory. I still go back and read his books. This was the first. I hear, FINALLY, that a movie is coming out based on November Man. Guess who is going to play him??? Ding Ding Pierce Brosnan. Here's to you Bill for a fantastic series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The first November novel 30 juillet 2014
Par TChris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
A good spy novel should have intrigue and suspense and characters who wrestle with internal conflicts. It should recognize the moral ambiguity inherent in espionage. Most importantly, it should hold a reader's rapt attention from the first scene to the last. The November Man does all that. First published in 1986 and the first in a series, a digital edition of The November Man is being re-released to coincide with the release of a movie of the same name.

Alexa, a KGB assassin, has been ordered to kill the agent known as November despite his offer to defect to the Soviet Union. November, whose real name is Devereaux, thinks he is safe because he left the trade, erased himself from the world, and is living a nondescript life in Switzerland with the woman he loves and a boy he rescued. Whether Devereaux will be forced to return to the trade, and what that will mean to his relationship with Rita, is a question that alternately torments and intrigues him.

Hanley, director of operations for the Section that employed November, has apparently suffered a breakdown. Contrary to regulations, Hanley has been calling November over unsecured lines, babbling about "Nutcracker" and saying "there are no spies" over and over. Hanley's meaning is unclear (even to November), but Hanley's boss eavesdrops, pronounces Hanley a threat to national security, and sends him to an institution for wayward government employees where heavy medication and electric fences assure his docile silence. Hanley's loyal colleague, Lydia Neumann, seems to be the only person who takes his side.

Who is November and why do so many people want him dead? How do the Russians know so much about him? Has he been betrayed by his former employer? For the first half of the novel, all we know with certainty is that November used to be a spy, one of the last of a vanishing breed. The novel introduces us to several others in and on the periphery of the spy game, all of whom are strong characters.

A part (but only a part) of "there are no spies" refers to the replacement of human operatives with signals intelligence, satellite surveillance, and other forms of spying that do not involve sending humans into the field. One of the novel's themes is the argument that humans interacting with humans can learn critical information that satellites cannot, and can give meaning and context to electronically gathered information that would otherwise be lost.

The spare elegance of Granger's prose and the emotional truth he gives to his characters makes The November Man stand out in the world of espionage fiction. If the plot is not as twisty and complex as some other spy novels might produce, it has the virtue of being tight, credible, and meaningful.
