For forty years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russians have a mole — code name 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 deception and deceit is spilling onto the streets . . .

Synopsis:

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.

Edward Hahn, February 27, 2014 (view all comments by Edward Hahn)
While not one of his best, this early spy story is a good one. It is very complicated at the start but things begin to resolve themselves after about 100 pages.

The protagonist, Tony Abrams, a retired NYC Detective is hired by a law firm owned by a few retired OSS officers. As people start turning up dead, Abrams postulates that one or more of the partners has turned rogue and is working for the Soviets. The Russian plan is to destroy all U.S. electronics by launching a an EMP nuclear explosion from space and thereby make it impossible for the U.S. to defend itself. As the plot unfolds, Abrams and others target the Soviet retreat on Long Island as headquarters for the plot. Everything unfolds from there.

There are many interesting characters, some good and some evil but all contribute to the suspense DeMille ratchets up as the story comes to its explosive conclusion.

I liked it a lot.
