While the other “Endless Quest” books I’ve reviewed were all based on Dungeons and Dragons, this was a rare example of a TSR-endorsed “choose-your-own-adventure” novel based on another of their products: “Top Secret,” the espionage role-playing game. “Top Secret,” as I played it, was more or less a Cold War James Bond-sort of adventure game, one that worked better for two players (one GM and one super-spy) than for the usual “parties” of other RPGs.

This is a Top Secret (TM) Endless adventure book. Like the other similar book (#7 Hero of Washington Square) it isn't very good, not even for a book where you choose your own adventure. There just isn't that much adventure here. There's lots of choices but they keep retreading the same ground over and over again. For example, you can read a nearly identical ending about 10 times (if you win) and there is an equal number of nearly identical endings for when you lose.
Ok, I guess all "Choose Your Path" books are not created equal. This one's kinda bland. I think the genre's more exciting when there are fantasy or sci-fi elements. It did take me back to a time when knowing morse code could still get you out of a bad situation, though!
