I Spy Treasure Hunt
No doubt about it.
I bought this book to replace the copy that my daughter had borrowed. She is two now. I expect her to get ten years out of this book. I bought another "I Spy" title to go with this one. Both books are easily worth three times what I paid.
The Spy (Isaac Bell)
The Spy got Caught
I really enjoy reading about the exploits of Isaac Bell and this book is no exception.
Model Spy (The Specialists)
Fun read , G rated, Loved it!
I loved this book. I've read all 4. Clean, fun, innocent and a good read for ages 14 and up. I say 14 and up because of the young romance. I don't know that kids younger than 14 would enjoy it. Loved the exchange between the characters. My favorite was between Gigi and her "agent" in the hotel. Proof that there are entertaining books out there without falling back on crude humor and filthy ...
Spies of the Balkans: A Novel
A Perspective of The Brutal Military and Social History of The Balkans
Alan Furst is known for a particularly fine accent on his insights into the human development of his characters. In this book, Constantine, aka Costa, Zannis, a Greek Police Officer, plays a pivotal role in the anti-Nazi underground. He is one of those policemen you want in your corner in times of need and desperation. He is an upright fellow of 40, good looking and rugged. His efforts to provide ...
The Unlikely Spy
An Edge of Your Seat Thriller
In "The Unlikely Spy", Daniel Silva, creates a realistic journey through wartime London prior to the Normandy invasion. Known for his series of novels featuring art restorer and Mossad agent Gabriel Allon, this novel is his first, I believe and is extremely well crafted. He has successfully penetrated the British consciousness and his protagonist, a historian and professor drafted by ...
The Faithful Spy (John Wells, No. 1)
Incredible First Effort
I picked this book up last summer at a garage sale for a dime after seeing Vince Flynn's recommendation on the cover. I finally got around to reading it this summer, and I wish I wouldn't have waited that long - this was a fantastic and incredibly enjoyable book! It's a political thriller with terrorism as its main plot device (like most political thrillers nowadays). But Berenson, who used to ...
The Spies of Warsaw: A Novel
Random House Trade Paperbacks
Outstanding Historical Spy Novel
This is a typical Furst historical spy thriller: Riveting, well-crafted and perfectly developed. I've read all Furst's other books and this ranks up there with the best. Like most of his books, this one foreshadows the cataclysmic events that are about to descend on Poland and the world as World War II. Furst gives a satisfying intimacy to these events. He also brings chilling perspective to ...
Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
I can't say enough good things about this book. Admittedly, when I received it in the mail, I was shocked at its size. This is a massive book. Don't let that dissuade you though. I seriously couldn't put it down. Metaxas's attention to detail is stunning. Moreover, he can really write. In his able hands, Bonhoeffer's story (which is amazing in its own right) is absolutely riveting.
Only the Good Spy Young (Gallagher Girls)
Hyperion Book CH
this book was the best out of all the others. it captured you and pulled you in. i didn't want to put the book down. i felt like i was in the book! SPOILER ALERT- i was sad and angry when i heard about Mr. Soloman. Then the fear in his voice as he stood on the bridge, it was as if i could see and hear him. then Cammie and Zach. the book captured me. i would recomend it to anyone. i can not wait ...
Harriet the Spy
Dated Yet Timely
Harriet The Spy was first published in 1964. I loved it when I first read it as a child a few years later, and have always remembered it fondly. Harriet M. Welsch lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. She leads a pampered life with parents who love her but don't spend much time with her. Her primary caregiver is her nurse, Ole Golly, who has encouraged her to write down her thoughts and ...
I Spy School Days
I SPY School Days Review
I ordered this I Spy book for 3 of my grandchildren who live in Hawaii. I haven't read the book myself but my daughter-in-law tells me that this book it on the nightly reading list.
The Damascus Letter: A Spy Novel
Black Diamond Publishing
Thoughtful, provocative, terrifying
When I was a boy, there was a rumor going around that Tom Clancy had been taken into custody by the CIA because his novels about the US military were so accurate, the CIA figured he must be part of some kind of spy network. When I read _The Damascus Letter_, I had the same feeling I used to get from Clancy novels. It's not just that DL is compelling. It's not just that I was biting my ...
The Honor of Spies (Honor Bound)
Don't be a Frade for me Argentina
I suppose that I have read at least 40 books by WEB Griffin (et al.) Clearly I am a fan. I did not rush through this one as I am prone to do. Sometimes Griffin shows a certain coyness in his works. Reminding us of a certain "days gone by" type of disposition. It is simply difficult to comprehend that the Argentinians of 1943 were so pro American, yet things did turn out a certain way. Ha, ...
The Reluctant Spy: My Secret Life in the CIA's War on Terror
John Kiriakou Shares His Passion Without Reluctance
This is definitely a book I will be talking about for quite some time. THE RELUCTANT SPY tells not only a man's journey of over a dozen years in the CIA, but the effects such a choice had on his overall life. The book does discuss the overall war on terror, but it also shows that such a war is not just fought in one location. In many ways we are at war in this country by the decisions we ...
I Spy Fantasy
I love all the "I Spy" books. This is a great book for the collectors of this series. My grandchildren spend so much time looking for the correct item. It's great fun for both of us.
Broker, Trader, Lawyer, Spy: The Secret World of Corporate Espionage
Very entertaining and informative read
Picked this up before a long flight. It's an excellent book. The stories are engaging and supremely interesting. If you would like to learn more about the world of corporate spies, this is a good book to read. I can't wait to finish it on my flight home.
The Spy Who Came in From the Cold
John le Carre
Walker & Company
A thoughtful critique of espionage
The spy games portrayed in this book are not like James Bond. There are no card games or cocktail parties, and no novel weapons and fancy gadgets. Instead, there are intelligent people playing mind games with each other, each only knowing a part of the whole story. The common theme throughout this book is that in the world of espionage, the ends justify the means. That ideals are an ...
Spies: The Rise and Fall of the KGB in America
John Earl Haynes
Mr. Harvey Klehr
Yale University Press
Excellent review of hundreds of important Americans' treasonable activities for the USSR
The culmination of Harvey Klehr's [with other authors] review of KGB's very successful spying in the USA in a whole series of excellent books.

ONCE A SPY-by Keith Thomson a Thriller- with sidesplitting dark humor about a degenerate Gambler and his former top spy father- who has early onset Alzheimer's - who are on the run- this book is brilliant- superb characters, plot, dialogue and a sensitivity to the terrible disease- yet somehow almost every page had me laughing out loud or unable to guess what will happen next- A classic in the ...
Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy (Gallagher Girls)
I had so much fun reading the first Gallagher Girl book that I was very excited to read the second. Now that we know more about Cammie and her school for spies, we get to add an element - boys in the school. There is apparently a boys school very similar to the school Cammie is currently in, and they will be staying with the girls for a short period of time. This opens up a whole new set of ...
