Excited that I'm on the final book

This is my first time reading through the series and I am loving it. Hopefully this book will be a fitting finale.

I nearly threw the book across the room when
Spoiler:
the giant robot shows up and kills the Al Qaeda terrorists
, but that's only about 20 pages from the end.

Finished it this morning, it's the perfect summer reading book. Reads very quick, like a classic Le Carre novel but modern for the post Bourne-era, with a very likeable lead character. I can't recommend it enough.
