reporter writes a story that gets a CIA operative in big trouble.
He learns after the fact that the information he has used was false information supplied by the Russians. From here it is nonstop action for our reporter. This book also gives you a very good idea about the power of the press and how it can be manipulated to achieve various means and goals.Through this book you go to several locations worldwide. The characters in the story are also well written. This is a good book that you will
enjoy very much. Buy it and read it. It is a winner.
being exacerbated by the US media, it's important
to read something that puts the power of the news
media - and the fact that not everyone who spills
ink is a friend of this country - into a new perspective.
The American people too often believe that everything
that they read in the papers and see in the news is true.
The Spike is a novel whose time has come again.
It's all here: the Soviet threat, the disgrace of the Clinton administration (read Connor admin) and its refusal to see the coming terrorist threat, etc.
Makes for a great read, if little sleep.
