9780156032957: Last Call for Blackford Oakes (Blackford Oakes Mysteries)

More than twenty years ago William F. Buckley Jr. launched the dashing character of Blackford Oakes like a missile over the literary landscape. This newly minted CIA agent-brainy, bold, and complex-began his career by saving the queen of England and quickly took his place in the pantheon of master spies drawn up by Somerset Maugham, Graham Greene, and John le Carre.

Review:

PRAISE FOR LAST CALL FOR BLACKFORD OAKES
"A consistently engaging piece of cloak-and-daggitude . . . [that] again validates Buckley's considerable fiction skills." -THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"Buckley's main charm as a novelist, besides the wit, is his easy
familiarity with the political and journalistic heavyweights he inserts into his fiction."-LOS ANGELES TIMES

From the Back Cover:

"A startlingly real picture of the Soviet Union before its implosion. We learn how we ultimately won the Cold War--yet how close we came to losing it." --Forbes More than twenty years ago, William F. Buckley Jr. launched the dashing character of Blackford Oakes like a missile over the literary landscape. This newly minted CIA agent--brainy, bold, and complex--began his career by saving the queen of England and quickly took his place in the pantheon of master spies. Against the backdrop of sinister Cold War intrigue, Oakes crosses paths with Kim Philby, perhaps the highest-ranking in the parade of defectors to the Soviet Union. Oakes is now himself a master spy, working out of the agency and around agency rules. But after his return to Washington he receives dismaying news, andit is inevitable that the great Soviet spy and the renowned American agent will meet again--this time, with deadly consequences. William F. Buckley, Jr. is the founder of "National Review" and was the host of "Firing Line," one of television's longest-running programs. The author of seventeen other novels, including"Who's on First; Marco Polo, If You Can;"and"High Jinx," he lives in Connecticut."
