"A SUPERLATIVE STORY...RIVETING...THE PLOT IS SO GOOD AND SO GRIPPING THAT PUTTING THE BOOK DOWN IS ALMOST A PHYSICAL IMPOSSIBILITY". -- Boston Herald
From the Back Cover
On a dark road deep inside Russia, a young American tourist picks up a most unusual passenger -- a U.S. POW on the run with an incredible secret to reveal to an unsuspecting world. The secret concerns "The Charm School", a vast and astounding KGB conspiracy that stands poised against the very heartland of America.
Arrayed against this renegade power of the Soviet state are three Americans: an Air Force officer, who will fly one last covert mission into the center of a mad experiment; an embassy liaison, who will have her hopes for a saner superpower balance brutally tested; and the chief of the CIA's Moscow station, who will find his intricate dance of destiny and death reaching its devastating conclusion.

It's another great DeMille novel, the setting in Russia is fascinating and after a rather slow start (that's why I rated the book only 4 stars) it develops into a real page turner.
SPOILERS!!! SPOILERS!!! SPOILERS!!!
For those who did not yet read this book, please stop reading here.
However, I wish DeMille would have mentioned in the end what became of Dodson and the other protagonists. All through the book we read about Dodson and finally we hardly find out anything about him. That's a bit frustrating.
I don't know if the books by our favorite authors that we read first have the biggest impact on us? In any case I love "Plum Island" more than the others and rate "Spencerville" my second favorite.
"Charm School" was a lot better than "The General's Daughter". It would make a great movie!!!
