Book review: Operation Herod

Operation Herod sees secret agent Rupert Hood pitted against Big Mama, who plans to kill men with a genetically modified disease that will ensure that only women survive.

Operation Herod is a short and fast-moving thriller. It does not rely on action, although there is some well-described action within, especially the attack on a military base by Big Mama’s forces. Hood ends up in numerous locations as he tries to track down Big Mama and save mankind, which aids the pace of the novel; this is helped by it being discovered that Hood has limited time to stop her. The plot and character of Big Mama fall very much within a super-villain that might be encountered by James Bond, but the book is less gritty than those by Fleming. Well worth a read.
