Like another of his books, "Charm School," this story has cold war, spy theme. But one thing that is different is that the plot is based in New York, instead of Russia. And in this story there are double agents within CIA and KGB.
With any novel, I always set out placing myself in the drama. DeMille makes it easy to be there.
Your heart will race. You may even say a few, "Gotchas."
And you will really be there amongst the drama, the spy life and the historical context.
communications in the US and thereby take over with their own President
makes another unique story and realistic reading. DeMille continues to
provide great dialog, emotionally interesting characters and suspense
throughout the book. Can't put the book down. The reappearance of one
of the main characters after a so-called parachuting accident is a
good twist. Also the flashbacks and the reappearance of intelligence
officers after 30 years is a good plot line. Which of them are the bad
guys is not answered until the very end with some great surprises!
is impressive throughout the book.
I wish Nelson Demille could write as fast as I can read.
He is among the FEW authors whose books I keep to read
My second read will be right before the movie comes out.
Enjoy this book!
Other good DeMille titles: Plum Island, Lion's Game, Charm School - my favorite.
