First half of book slow but picks up in the second half. Ahead of it's time in its tone of cynicism and moral bankruptcy. Heroes don't exist in this world of espionage. Also a bit tawdry. And the resolution of the book is almost ala Agatha Christie: the gathering of clues scattered throughout the book to arrive at the reasonable conclusion of the story. Entertaining but you almost have to read it twice to completely understand the plot. I still liked the book.

A brilliant, 70s-centric tale of a spy-network inside the Soviet Union. One person must make a huge sacrifice for the plan to work. LOVE the ending. LOVE the writing style. It was made into an excellent film staring Richard Boone (star of the Paladin TV series).

I'm amazed someone had a copy of this novel at all let alone one that has survived five decades. That being said, the Kremlin Letter is rife with extreme sexual content. I've wondered if The Amerikans series originated with this novel and the film based on it. Not for everyone.

It's about the times when the cold war between the Soviet Union and the USA was at itt's peak.Reviewed in Australia on April 11, 2021
The book shows the violent world of the professional spy. It also shows the duplicity and self interest of the cynical world of people who do this kind of thing for a living
