Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tense, chilling, unflaggingly lively…A romp and something more.” Wall Street Journal
“[Offers] fascinating glimpses of such Capitol figures as Abe Fortas, the Bundys, and Robert Kennedy.” Publishers Weekly
“Buckley strives with fair effect to ring soft bells on the Martyred Buddy theme familiar to fans of far-off wars since Beau Geste. Sensible spying, with buffoonish Lyndon Johnson for comic relief.” Kirkus Reviews
