McCarry can always be counted on for an entertaining but historically rich tale. The plot on this one will make you shake your head but capture you. I am surprised this one didn't get more critical attention ten years ago when it was written. Fast paced, sexy with some interesting insights on American culture, the radical scene in the 60s and 70s and the atmosphere in the Soviet era.

Interesting twist on the “Manchurian Candidate” concept. I actually picked this up on the recommendation of a blogger on the WSJ. I think he was implying that Barrack Obama had similar qualities to the character in the book and had been handpicked in a similar manner. I’m not sure about all that, but it did peak my interest while reading. Overall I enjoyed the book; I found it entertaining though the ending was extremely rushed. The author took it this far, it could have used another 200 pages or more to give it a well thought out ending. The sex scenes were graphic, but no big deal for me. The narration was just okay.
