Summary

Summary

On a dark road deep inside Russia, a young American tourist picks up a most unusual passenger a US POW on the run with an incredible secret to reveal to an unsuspecting world. The secret concerns a place called Mrs. Ivanova’s Charm School, a vast and astounding KGB conspiracy that stands poised against the very heartland of America. Arrayed against this renegade power of the Soviet state are three Americans: an Air Force officer, who will fly one last covert mission into the center of a mad experiment; an embassy liaison, who will have her hopes for a saner superpower balance brutally tested; and the chief of the CIA’s Moscow station, who will find his intricate dance of destiny and death reaching its devastating conclusion. 

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A harrowing journey to the heart of totalitarian darkness…A chilling, compelling, disquieting, and ultimately devastating tale of police state savagery and superpower treachery.” Washington Post
“An exciting, well-written story with a lot more action than spy-novel fans are accustomed to…This story gets high marks in suspense, action, and overall readability.” San Diego Union-Tribune
“Highest marks go to The Charm School, which just might be the thriller of the year. It is relentlessly suspenseful, generating excitement on every page and presenting an honest, unflinching portrait of the Soviet Union and its people. The Charm School makes the grade.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“A first-class thriller.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“The plot is so good and gripping that putting the book down is almost a physical impossibility.” Boston Herald
“[A] highly charged espionage thriller…Riveting reading.” Publishers Weekly
