    1. A short story that serves as a prologue to the novel The Cairo Affair. Not absolutely necessary to read it, but a very good story nonetheless that introduces The Cairo Affair's protagonist.


    2. Um pequeno conto de espionagem que nos deixa com algumas questões em aberto.mistérios que ficam por desvendar. Fico à espera que o livro seguinte seja mesmo uma continuação deste!


    3. My first glimpse at this Author. In a short story, he can reveal all the mastery of his writing and plotting. I am now looking forward to reading other books by him, such as the "Cairo" case I was also astonished at the incredible knowledge he revealed about Lisbon streets and also suburban areasMaria Carmo,Lisbon, 2 June 2017.


    4. Este pequeno conto serve de apresentação ao protagonista do livro "O caso do Cairo" e, apesar de bem curto, é um bom pronuncio do que aí vem, já que a escrita é bastante agradável e o personagem me cativou. Aliado a isso, foi muito interessante observar a descrição das ruas de Lisboa e a análise do estado social e do ambiente de crise no nosso país através dos olhos de um autor estrangeiro.



    5. Essentially a prologue of sorts to The Cairo Affair, this novella introduces one of the book's main players and certainly did its job in getting me hooked and eager to move on to the novel it precedes.


    6. Highly recommendedClearly, this is intended to draw readers into the Cairo novel, and I assure you it does. Quick, but effective


    7. Read it on the planeThis is a very easy read and will help pass the hours of a long trip. It washes over with a foreigner's view of a European capital. There may be an independent movie one day


    8. Synopsis/blurb…In a thrilling e-exclusive short story, New York Times bestselling espionage master Olen Steinhauer introduces the enigmatic John Calhoun, an international security contractor who plays a prominent role in Steinhauer's latest novel, The Cairo Affair.Before his assignment to the CIA's Cairo office, John worked in Lisbon, Portugal, where he took part in an extraordinary rendition - the apprehension of a wanted individual for interrogation. But from the beginning of the operation n [...]


    9. Esta pequena obra de 47 páginas é vendida num pack com o volume seguinte "O Caso do Cairo" e apresenta-nos a personagem John Calhoun. Passa-se em Portugal e é surpreendente o nível de conhecimento que um autor estrangeiro revela sobre Portugal e a austeridade (a acção passa-se aquando da Cimeira da NATO em Lisboa), o terramoto de 1755 e a movimentação das personagens por Lisboa torna-se verosímil para um português, pois são dados pontos de referência e nomes de ruas autênticos.Um pe [...]


    10. This is an “e-original” story that takes about the length of one hot bath--with or without Mister Bubble--to read and enjoy, but Steinhauer poses an interesting question. What might happen during a CIA-run rendition in Lisbon if the subject turns out to be innocent and the contract muscle hired to help with the job unexpectedly has both a brain and a conscience? The muscle is a guy named John Calhoun--resourceful and enigmatic and African-American--who apparently turns up again in the hardco [...]


    11. Really a e-teaser for the forthcoming novel The Cairo Affair but a very well done one at that. Tension, bursts of action, the complex sorting of turth from lies and the inevitable gray, questions about identity and the choices we make. Classic Steinhauer really. Certainly made me want to read the full length novel but whether it is worth $.99 is up to you. Since I would gladly give the author a dollar given all the great books he has delivered it is an easy choice for me.Now on to Cairo


    12. This is an interesting short novella in the espionage genre. It is also a nice demonstration of one of the things that ebooks are doing for us - the return of short/shorter fiction and nonfiction. This is important as we see the decline of magazines offering this fare. Here you have a quick and enjoyable read.


    13. This was a short story, which I believe was simply an introduction to the John Calhoun series. It may have even been a free sample, and it included the first part of the next installment of the series, The Cairo Affair. It was a decent, quick read, but not much plot. I think it did introduce the character fairly well


    14. As it happens, I learned of this short story after I had already read "The Cairo Affair" but it was no less enjoyable for that even though it is a prequel. And 99 cents (kindle price) for 30 minutes or so of entertainment seems like a bargain to me. Heck, you can't get a cup of coffee for that sum, at least not where I live.




    15. Really just a preview for the new novel, but does that job pretty well. I enjoyed the Tourist trilogy, so looking forward to what Steinhauer does next.




    16. Even though it's really short, it was very good and makes me want to know more about the agent John Just a pity that he doesn't continue in Lisbon!



    17. Can't believe I spent a buck to read this promo for Steinhauer's imminent novel the Cairo Affair. It was well done, as expected, but not worth the dollar from Kindle.
