Editorial Reviews

Review

This is an expertly crafted thriller that is full of many uncomfortable plausibilities. Though clearly labeled fiction, it dances knowledgeably with many old and new ghosts, including the CIA, the KGB, the Kennedy assassination, terrorism, and a range of state secrets. Coming from a Republican and Democrat who together have many years of experience on the Senate Intelligence Committee, The Double Man has to be taken, minimally, as a grim warning about the intelligence services in our own country and elsewhere. --Bob Woodward --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Absolutely no sense of completion. My only guess is that everything will be resolved in a future book (though I wouldn't read it).
The book was written well but that only leads to the expectation that there will be some substance to the plot. The reader never finds out: 1. Who the double man is (if there is one). 2. What really happens to Elaine. 3. Who her father really is, etc. The protagonist (investigator) never finds out anything himself but is told everything by secret "deep-throat" types.
The ending is wrapped up in a few pages by someone who seems to be in a hurry to get back to the Senate floor for roll-call.
In exchange for learning about some inside workings of the senate, we are forced to except a far fetched plot that magically ties up the JFK asassination, drug smuggling, the Mafia, and secret KGB plots.

I got this paperback at a book sale and I don't think it was worth the 50 cents that it cost.

This book will change the way you think of committee meetings. Perhaps make you want to watch more on the TV..and not let others tell you what you should think. When Congress meets and asks questions - are we asking why? What answers are they really seeking...and why,
This is really a seemingly "insider" book - it sparked my interest in Congress and it's various members.

I enjoyed the book. I think it opens peoples eyes that were young when
President Kennedy was killed. It also helps peole that are naive about the government to know that kind of stuff really went on.

Wood love a sequile.
