When those in the intelligence community gather to drink, they joke about the myth of the Oiorpata, beautiful assassins trained in seduction and programmed to kill using firearm, knife, bare hands, or a myriad of seemingly benign objects with equal ease. The Oiorpata have practiced their deadly art undetected. Until now.

I suppose you could request that your library order my books from Amazon although only "Oiorpata" is in paperback form. Maybe they have a way of checking out Kindle books too. I'd appreciate that, of course. My other books are "Weird Tales" and "More Weird Tales Including the Bad Review." For some reason, I enjoy writing stories that are a combination of horror and science fiction when I write short stories. It's a losing proposition to argue with someone when they give you a bad review and you feel it's unfair, so I wrote a short story about it (smile). I have another book finished which will be out as a Kindle book sometime soon. It's titled "Blue's Point" and is a thriller, but not a spy thriller. I appreciate your interest in my books.

When I saw the cover for this book, I initially thought it was a historical thriller. The style of the text, the flags and the painted faces scream historical to me.

What we actually have is a tight, wonderfully written conspiracy thriller that hooks you from the beginning and doesn't let you go until the finish. At times, there's a lot going on but never too much as to confuse the reader. Spanning the globe from USA to Russia and beyond, this is a thriller with scope, balls and panache.

This book was a huge and pleasant surprise. I started reading it because I had to (don't ask) but very quickly became engrossed in the story and the very well-developed characters. 4 stars only because I reserve 5 stars for Harlan Coben et al.

Historical thriller where KGB has big plans to take out all opposition. I gave this novel 4 stars because it was a slow start but gained momentum fairly quickly and by the end I couldn't put it down.

Decided on 5 stars because it gathers steam from the beginning to the end.Like someone esle said, I was fascinated by the story of the female agent. Good plot, good characters, good ending.

Richard Ferguson has written a masterful spy novel here that will blow your socks off. The plot centers on Russia as being thoroughly beaten in the Cold War. Unfortunately for the USA, that is what the Russians have wanted them to see, and they are far from beaten. All throughout this time they have waited to unleash a plot to dominate the world.
Ferguson allows the plot to unwind through the eyes of a CIA agent Ben, and his counterpart in Russia, a beautiful Soviet agent named Marina.

I had picked up this book based on a 5 star rating given. I have never been so thoroughly dissatisfied with a reading experience. The style of writing is totally amateurish. The character buildup is poor. In fact sometimes it staffed towards being incoherent. It reminds you of the plot of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. But a far far far inferior version. There is absolutely no pace, no tension and no intrigue. Avoid this book. It's a sheer waste of time, energy and money.
