Saving the Queen is an interesting twist on the spy novel, and especially intriguing because WFB was a former CIA agent. I did wonder how much of what he wrote was true vs fabricated. The novel takes a bit of time to get started, seemingly meandering around the development of Blackford Oakes, the central character. But as the story picks up, the pace picks up and the novel reads a bit faster in its last half.
I might pick up some of the other early novels, just to see how Buckley develops his hero.
