So I'm finally reading Greg Rucka's A Gentleman's Game. st_crispins, I very much want to recommend this book for you--and any other Sandbaggers / Le Carre fans out there. I haven't been reading Queen and Country, though I had heard it was heavy Sandbaggers homage, because comics usually frustrate me unless I read them in collected format.

Anyway, the characters are different--and pretty well done--and the writing is tight and enjoyable without being flashy--but the setup and structure is pure Sandbaggers. It's fast-paced and smart. An excellent example of its type.
