Review: Paul Blake's A Young Man's Game is filled with action that holds your attention, characters that are relatable; relatable in the way that they make you experience the entire wheel of emotions. Paul's descriptions are on point, and the reader can visualize everything that is happening. The story held my attention the whole time. Alec is such a dynamic and realistic protagonist. The actions sequences show how a 51 year-old-man would operate in such conditions.

I have loved the city of Berlin my whole life, and the amount of detail he put into world building is outstanding. I give this story a strong 5/5 stars. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves this genre, and people who enjoy Jason Bourne-style action.

The cover gets a strong A. The colors work well with the image. It has a Western European vibe, and it is very fitting for the theme of the story.
