Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Actual events are made as urgent and terrifying as they were in the bad old days.” Time
“Buckley brings us face -to-face with the possibilities lurking behind our real headlines.” San Fancisco Chronicle
“Narrator Geoffrey Blaisdell has a sophisticated style. His wry, and often dry, performance is engaging and keeps the listener glued to the story, which takes Oakes from the boardroom to the brig—and a date with a Cuban firing squad.” AudioFile
“Buckley’s most successful attempt to shade his fanciful thriller-comedy into more serious matter of love, loyalty, and honor.” Kirkus
