    There was a time, from about the 1970s to the end of the 1980s, when nifty, sophisticated little thrillers like this one showed up in bookstores on a regular basis from such writers as Richard Condon The Manchurian Candidate and William Goldman No Way to Treat a Lady Reading this Ross Thomas novel reminded me of the pleasures of those by gone days of books with an engaging plot, clever dialogue, a strong interest in sex, a cynical view of humanity and a twist of some sort.In this novel, There was a time, from about the 1970s to the end of the 1980s, when nifty, sophisticated little thrillers like this one showed up in bookstores on a regular basis from such writers as Richard Condon The Manchurian Candidate and William Goldman No Way to Treat a Lady Reading this Ross Thomas novel reminded me of the pleasures of those by gone days of books with an engaging plot, clever dialogue, a strong interest in sex, a cynical view of humanity and a twi...

    Based on a universe of two books I also read The Cold War Swap a few years ago , I like Ross Thomas novels Twilight at Mac s Place spins forward in an easy to read relaxed style, with witty dialogue, a plot that s just intricate enough, and a steady progression of intrigue The characters are interesting people, and their actions seem to sit on the border between real life CIA dirty dealings and a send up of the whole Cold War experience as a result,...
