Em with an author uickly capitalizing on momentary success to make a lot of money in a seuel go for it Butpleaseit is clear that this novel was written is about one week and it shows painfully Will readers including myself ever stop expecting seuels to be any good Of course not A reread of this book and I ave to say it didn t uite live up to my memories and it definitely doesn t live up to the billing of it s well known preuel The Eiger Sanction Jonathan Hemlock is in London doing a series of lectures e as cut ties with CII the spy organization that Jack Glass had supportedis art abit by iring Me Write Book him out to do sanctions But as most of us know we can never fully leave our past behind Hemlock is drawn into the spy and killing game again but this time by a British spy agency called the Loo and of course no one and nothing is what it seems Who is genuine and who is playing whom is only part of the uestion and weave some of the familiar twists and turns of plot that made the Eiger Sanction such a seat of the pants read We know who the bad guy is and what Cosmological Enigmas he is trying to do or at least we think we know And we know who the good guys are or we think we do But we do know that there is going to be a lot ofurt going around and we are At Hells Gate hoping that Dr Hemlock will be dishing it out and not receiving too much of it There are many inconsistencies with Hemlocks personality between this book and the Eiger Sanction In the Eiger Sanction it was repeated many times that Hemlock onlyad 3 friends and by the end of the book only 1 was still alive yet Never Goodbye (Albany Boys, he introduces Vanessa Van Dyke as one of Hemlocks old art friends And then there is the continued relationship with Mollie andis reactions at the end of the book Unfortunately this book ad a big yardstick to live up to and although being a good read it just didn t uite make it to the same level that the previous book was at My experience with Trevanian as been a mixed bag big winners and eually big losers In my opinion this one falls into the losers category It is a dull dark sordid tale of assorted criminals and their activities A total waste of time.

review The Loo Sanction
Me off guard and some really clever lines Hunted by Herne (Otherkind Kink: Horned Gods, here and there I thought Iad read The Eiger Sanction the first book in the series but I m probably remembering the Clint Eastwood movie Same basic plot but definitely without the campy spy fiction satire I really liked Shibumi another of the author s books but it incorporated Lady Lorena’s Spinster’s Society history and not anyumor that I can remember 45 starsI did enjoy this book even though it lacked the originality of the The Eiger Sanction According to Trevanian it was a spoof of The Eiger Sanction a spoof of a spoof Of course the title itself should give the reader a clue loo being the British word for toilet And of course we On the First Night of Christmas have the usual play on names such as Vanessa Dyke who lo and More of a 35 rounded up Hemlock is back in England so the title pretty much screams Trevanian s intention to sneer at all things English artsy everything else while wrapping it in an international thriller peopled with memorable characters Hemlock isn t James Bond though He s smarter every bit as ruthless if not as prone to as much action There s plenty of murder mayhem taking place aroundim as the twisted motivations slowly emergeI didn t like this as much as The Eiger Sanction but almost There were several important caricatures not true characters while they served the purpose they were also a bit too obvious Call it a lack of subtlety While Trevanian s sneering take on the world is rather fun funny I can t endure it for too long I probably should P.S. Im Pregnant have let time slip by after the firstI didn t care much for the end but I think that was on me I didn t really get it A group I belong to will be reading it soon I ll be curious to see what others say I might update this review after that Trevanian s seuel tois classic The Eiger Sanction is awful Absent are the Tigress for Two (Alaskan Tigers, humor adventure and all out fun of that previous work The plot is obvious with physically disgusting characters that nauseate the reader Of course there s Jonathan Hemlock s characteristically macho sexuality along with out of this world sexy fully naked women but they re not even slightly erotic this timeIave no probl.

This book as a brilliant title which gave me interesting visions of what Jonathan Hemlock would be up to The title and the previous novel The Eiger sanction were enticing enough to pick up a copy and read itThis is a novel about the dark side of spy craft it leaves nothing intact of the romanticized idea of spies in the UK it is than shady it is kind of awefull The retired assassin Hemlock is doing a series of lectures in the UK and e gets caught in a situation where a dying man is found on Sailor Moon Episode Lists his toilet also known as loo in the UK Instead of payingim to do a service a spy agency by the name of the Loo blackmails Hemlock into doing a job for them Everything that Attentions Throbbing happens in this bookas something less than tastefulness about it none of the characters are symp Everyone is no doubt familiar with the movie Eiger Sanction based on a book of the same name by Trevanian pseudonym for a university professor who wrote a series of very popular genre novels Miffed that critics and many readers did not get the spoof intended in the Eiger Sanction Dark Reflections (Dark Reflections, he wrote the Loo Sanction which is not only a very successful spy thriller but a broad lampoon of British and American academia and the espionage community The puns surrounding the word loo the name of the British section that evolved into MI 6 l I went back in time to reread these favorite thrillers They re a reminder that spies and odd political thingsave always been fodder for great thrillers And you can depend on Spinetinglers Anthology 2008 his researchI always enjoy reading thrillers thatave the tradecraft down I enjoy that than the CGI battles we see so often in films The parody is broader ere than in The Eiger Sanction and that may be why it s less edge of the seat It s still a good fun read There is an art theft in this novel and according to Trevaniancom after the Italian version of this novel was published there was an art theft in Milan using the method described in this book A really fast read I was expecting a classic thriller but was surprised that it was such a campy book with such comical characters Really a two and alf star rating Some Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity humor caught.
