Right riveting read, 16 May 2003
A compelling read that had me ensnared from the first few pages. Despite its length (over 1200 pages), it feels much shorter as I was drawn into the plot and swept through 4 decades of cold war history seen through the eyes of the CIA. Not sure how much of it is based on reality but a fabulous book none-the-less.
