Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?

A good thriller that would have been better had it been tightened up

The Cairo Affair - Olen Steinhauer

What I really liked about this political thriller was how the events all blossomed out from Cairo and the Arab Spring uprisings as a whole. I liked the various POV's of the characters who each brought a different insight to the murder. That said, I think the story could have done with another pass to severely cut it down. I found many of the characters revisiting the same issues and questions over and over again. Had that been done, I would have found it a tighter, more taut and enjoyable read.
