I think The Charm School is one of the best books of all time. I grew up during the Cold War 80s and I'm fascinated with what life must've been like in the Soviet Union.

Alison I agree! I visited the then-named Soviet Union in 1989 (at 14 years old) and I recall what it was like then. An excellent book-love the secrecy side of it-so KGB.

Ami | 1 comments Hi, I'm new to the group, so glad to find this group as I am a fan of Nelson DeMille, espically the John Corey and Paul Brenner books. The first one I ever read was Plum Island and from then on I was hooked!

Cheryl (raidercheryl) | 2 comments Sorry, hit "enter" too soon. Charm School is one of my all-time favorite me hooked on DeMille. I am enjoying, "Wild Fire" currently. And, basically, his books about military history just enthrall me - they are fantastic!

Anyway, I recommend "Charm School" to EVERY serious book reader out there...cannot live life without ever reading this book, period!

Keith Rogers (ktrog) | 1 comments DeMilles books are great. Currently reading The Lion and thoroughly enjoying it. The great thing about DeMille is the range of topics he writes on. Loved Gold Coast!
I agree old KGB-esque type thrillers are great. Nothing like rain soaked cobble streets at night time in Berlin for a good spy thriller!!

Alan | 1 comments Love this book, the world was a very paranoid place in the 80's and this sums it up very nicely.
