Some other reviewers have stated that, unlike other Demille books, the Talbot Odyssey is a little harder to follow. I found also that it was not the page-turner at times, but this is such a great story if you can stick with it for 150 pages; then things pick up from there and you will constantly ask yourself "who is the bad guy?" because Demille weaves such a plot together that you are not sure who should watch who's back -- JUST like in a real-life spying. This is a Cold War spy fiction classic! There is a LOT of shooting in this book.

Ok, Not Great

I had trouble getting into this book; too many characters thrown at you seemingly at once. About 1/3 of the way through I got past that confusion and settled down to a good DeMille read.
