Buckley's Blackford Oakes novels are always a great read, entertaining in the best sense of the word and politically informative. Despite the seeming unbelievability of the charachters, Buckley manages to make them seem quite real. In this book, it is the 'love and war' relationship between the arch-conservative Oakes and his left-leaning-liberal girlfriend Sally that is fun. The reader enjoys thieir ripostes and the flashing passion between them. In the meantime, Blackford has to win the cold war yet again (yawn) by double-crossing the KGB and saving the world for democracy. All in a days work.
