    James Jesus Angleton was an enigma, a secretive man whose power was at its peak during the height of the Cold War. Founder of U.S. counter-intelligence, hunter of moles and foes of America, his name has become synonymous with skulduggery and subterfuge. Angleton pursued his enemies, real and imagined, with a cool, calculating intelligence. Eventually convinced that there was a turncoat within the highest reaches of the U.S. government, Angleton turned all of his considerable skills to finding and exposing him. The result ... Show more

Extra Vocabulary and a Twist at the Ending

by EdoRoshi on Dec 27, 2007

Link any Buckley book, every few pages there is a word that even an experienced reader must look up: "grateful ORISONS of history" p.6, "Something eclatant." p.8, "from his eyrie in Bern" p.9, "De mortuis nil nisi bonum" p. 56, "But then there was the fillip" p. 120, "I am a satyr witness" p. 121, "a nice romantic bowdlerization of the world" p. 129, "the dormer window" p. 143, "full Arab aba gowns" p. 149, "as if a tonsure was his purpose" p. 150, "put on his pince-nez" p. 186, "At first there was just the rebab, p. 194, "any hemidemisemiquaver in the Communist line" p. 197, and my favorite "the placid remains of his ardor" p. 211 -- and many more. The story moves quickly, has reasonable coverage of Angleton's early career in Italy, and includes a very surprising ending that I won't spoil for you. Espionage, betrayal, mystery, violence and of course sex -- all the perfect ingredients for an interesting espionage novel, told only as William can.
