CIA super-secret agent, Blackford Oakes is called in to unmask a shadowy
Russian mole who threatens to undermine the Free World's defenses. Oakes turns
the tables on the communists by piloting a U-2 spy plane behind the Iron
Curtain. Sentenced to death and trapped in the depths of Lubyanka prison, Oakes
may have played his last trick. Or has he? Blackford Oakes novels have always
had a very wide appeal, as readers are drawn by the delightful characters and
intricate plots. "Marco Polo, If You Can" and "See You Later Alligator" have
plenty of both.
