Synopsis:
Master of espionage fiction and National Book Award winner William F. Buckley Jr. brings us another in his best-selling series starring the intrepid CIA agent Blackford Oakes.

When a shadowy Russian mole threatens to undermine the free world's defenses by infiltrating President Eisenhower's National Security Counsel, CIA super-secret agent Blackford Oakes is called in to unmask the imposter. Then, Oakes turns the tables on the Communists by piloting a U-2 spy plane on a Gary Powers-style one-way mission behind the Iron Curtain. Sentenced to death and trapped in the depths of the Lubyanka prison, Oakes may have turned his last trick. Or has he?

From the Publisher

Review:
It's 1960, and American agent Blackford Oakes faces a Moscow court, charged with flying a spy plane in Soviet air space. Geoffrey Blaisdell narrates the convoluted story of how Oakes has ended up on trial with an erudite voice that echoes Buckley's own. As Blaisdell emphasizes the wry humor in Oakes's account, listeners may forget that Buckley himself isn't actually narrating. Blaisdell also delights in the portrayals of the real-life figures, especially the tense, needling relationship between President Eisenhower and Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschchev. Blaisdell's strong reading emphasizes nostalgia and character more than the thrills of a spy mission, but it's an entertaining take on Buckley's novel. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
