    I really enjoyed this book both because it was well written and suspenseful but also because of the unapologetic anti communist bias I don t like books that throw gratuitous political slurs around, catching you unaware in a scifi book or a murder mystery, but this is a political thriller with the author s viewpoint clearly available from the start so no one needs to read it who isn t up for that angle Further, the author has both the protagonists and antagonists as members of the same I really enjoyed this book both because it was well wri...

    Another fun read by Charles McCarry Found a hardcover copy of this one at a used book sale for only 2 bucks and snapped it up At 558 pages I was a little intimidated to begin, so it sat around a while I m not one to read Political Thrillers either, which also didn t get me to rush to it.What fun it was to read McCar...

    Cognitive dissonance I m so used to political fiction where the bad guys are invariably rich, greedy businessmen and it s the conservatives that are the bigots that a novel where elitist left wingers are behind all the nefarious plots is disorienting, even though I tend to share McCarry s world view Also, this was written in the 90s, back when the idea of a president ordering the assassination of a foreign terrorist was enough to get him impeached, rather than applauded Stolen elections and Cognitive dissonance I m so used to political fiction where the bad guys are invariably rich, greedy businessmen and it s the conservatives that are the bigots that a novel where elitist left wingers are behind all the nefarious plots is disorienting, even though I tend to share McCarry s world view Also, this was written in the 90s, back when the idea of a president ordering the assassination of a foreign terrorist was enough to get him impeached, rather than applauded Stolen elections an...

    This is, in my humble opinion, the worst book by Charles McCarry I have read many of them, some I did like quite a lot, some less but I never stumbled into such a cockamamie story like Shelley s heart The plot is clumsy, the situations totally implausible, the characters ranging from insignificant to ridiculous.Just as a few examples a manic obsessive appointed Chief Justice, assisted by two loony Valkyrie paralegal, who runs private, secret investigations on the President of the USA using, This is, in my humble opinion, the worst book by Charles McCarry I have read many of them, some I did like quite a lot, some less but I never stumbled into such a cockamamie story like Shelley s heart The plot is clumsy, the situations totally implausible, the characters ranging from insignificant to ridiculous.Just as a few examples a manic obsessive appointed Chief Justice, assisted by two loony Valkyrie paralegal, who runs private, secret investigations on the President of the USA using, among other systems, spiritic sessions with Ouija board a secret sect, kind of Masonic society, plotting a conspiracy to overthrow the US democracy in the name of the poet Shelley an impeachment process ran like no banana republic wouldThe ending is also rather disappointing, just flat and without any final twist able to add some spice to an insipid story.So, if anyone is going to start reading McCarry from Shelley s heart, he is not off to a good start.I would rather sugg...

    During the past year I have become a Charles McCarry fan I enjoy his insight into the espionage spy world based on his experience as a covert CIA agent This book, however, has a minimum of tradecraft and a large helping of political intrigue The book was written in 1994 95 and focuses on the impeachment of a sitting president Sound familiar As we are introduced to the characters on both sides of the aisle, we discover many are members of a secret society at Yale University The author s During the past year I have become a Charles McCarry fan I enjoy his insight into the espionage spy world based on his experience as a covert CIA agent This book, however, has a minimum of tradecraft and a large helping of political intrigue The book was written in 1994 95 and focuses on the impeachment of a sitting president Sound familiar As we are introduced to the characters on both sides of the aisle, we discover many are members of a secret society at Yale University The author s in depth knowle...

    I ve been reading all of McCarry He has the most eerily ability to predict so much that has come true suicide bombers, terrorists taking over airplanes, bombings in cities, impeachment of the President with members of a university secret society pulling the strings of the players He also has a habit of bringing characters back or having characters from other work finally mingling with others The bulk of this novel spends time on an illegal election and the impeachment of the President I ve been reading all of McCarry He has the...

    A President who has pet names for everyone, both political parties interested only in their own group and individual self preservation, sexual improprieties both real and part of a plot, conspiracy theories both rud and real, men and women of wealth and power trying to manipulate the process for control of government seemingly ripped from the scripts of any news program todayand yet I kept having to check the copyright page to confirm this book wa...

    3 With just a touch of restraint this could have been another very good book by McCarry.Sadly, for me at least, it was just a bit longer than it needed to be, several of the major characters were simply too cartoonish to allow suspension of disbelief and it quickly lea...
