Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Published in 1982 and 1984, respectively, these are two of Buckley's popular Blackie Oakes spy thrillers. They feature the usual U.S./Soviet Cold War cloak-and-dagger action and provide "flawless entertainment" (LJ 3/1/84).
Anatole Broyard
The best part of ''The Story of Henri Tod,'' William Buckley's fifth suspense novel, is his portrait of former President John F. Kennedy. His rendering of Nikita Khrushchev is quite good too, and this tempts me to suggest that Mr. Buckley seems most at home when he projects himself into the minds of heads of state....When his subject is less exalted, he appears to lose interest or become inattentive. While his wit is first-rate, his humor is sometimes collegiate. And if his digressions on politics are brilliant, his plotting can be pedestrian....The trouble is, Mr. Buckley in being extraordinary, invites more than ordinary comment. -- New York Times
