The Blackford Oakes Reader is a collection of the character studies that lie at the heart of these novels. As Buckley explains in his introduction, "In the first novel guess it is correct to say that I intuitively got the idea that the novel should frame one person (primarily). That person's character and experiences should illuminate the story."

The New York Times
If john Le Carre' is the Henry James of suspence fiction, Mr. Buckley, if he chose, might be the Evelyn Waugh.
The wall Street Journal
Good yarns as well as crisp political fables.
