It's been a long time since I read this, but Condon gets an extra star from me simply for his writing style and characters. He's always been underrated. Read full review

Very "old school" 1974 political thriller from the writer of the Manchurian Candidate, loosely based on the investigation into killing Pres. Kennedy in 1963. If you like spy stories and political thrillers, this might be for you. Read full review
