IT STARTED AS A SIMPLE SPY HUNT.

IT BECAME A DESPERATE BATTLE TO SAVE THE WEST.

For forty years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russians have a mole -- code-named Talbot -- inside the CIA. At first Talbot is suspected of killing European agents. Then a street-smart ex-cop uncovers a storm of espionage and murder on the streets of New York, while in a Long Island suburb a civic demonstration against the Russian mission masks a desperate duel of nerves and wits.

Engineered by Talbot, a shadow world of suspicion and deceit is spilling onto the streets -- leading to a new Soviet weapon and a first-strike war plan threatening the foundations of American government.

For the U.S., time is running out. For Talbot, the time is now.

Wow....just think what might have happened if the terrorist of 9/11 had read this book. Would they have used planes or gone for the technological approach? Riveting, fast-paced, and twisted, DeMille keeps you guessing right up to the last 3 pages. Couldn't put this one down. He is in the same class as Jeffrey Deaver.

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.

I had read most of DeMille's books, so wanted to read 'Talbot Odyssey' as I was sure that it would be just as good as his others. I wasn't disappointed, and enjoyed this fast paced adventure from start to finish.

The Talbot Odyssey is another DeMille Masterpiece and an example of DeMille's brilliant plot development and powerful denouements. Kate Mayfield and Tony Abrams help solidify Talbot Odyssey as a Cold War thriller you simply cannot put down.

Another fantastic DeMille book that I just couldn't put down. Action packed from beginning to end. I've read all of Demille's boks and this was my second favorite (Charm School was my favorite).

I discovered Mr. DeMille several years ago and have read all his books. In fact, I have his latest on pre-order now. I'm so glad I didn't read "The Talbot Odyssey" first, as I would have missed some great reading. I found this book to be too violent and missed the humorous main character he has in his other books.
