Overview: The Talbot Odyssey

IT STARTED AS A SIMPLE SPY HUNT. IT BECAME A DESPERATE BATTLE TO SAVE THE WEST. For forty years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russians have a mole -- code-named Talbot -- inside the CIA. At first Talbot is suspected of killing European agents. Then a street-smart ex-cop uncovers a storm of espionage and murder on the streets of New York, while in a Long Island suburb a civic demonstration against the Russian mission masks a desperate duel of nerves and wits. Engineered by Talbot, a shadow world of suspicion and deceit is spilling onto the streets -- leading to a new Soviet weapon and a first-strike war plan threatening the foundations of American government. For the U.S., time is running out. For Talbot, the time is now. About The Author: About The Author: Nelson DeMille has a dozen bestselling novels to his name and over 30 million books in print worldwide, but his beginnings were not so illustrious. Writing police detective novels in the mid-1970s, DeMille created the pseudonym Jack Cannon: "I used the pen name because I knew I wanted to write better novels under my own name someday," DeMille told fans in a 2000 chat. Between 1966 and 1969, Nelson DeMille served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. When he came home, he finished his undergraduate studies (in history and political science), then set out to become a novelist. "I wanted to write the great American war novel at the time," DeMille said in an interview with January magazine. "I never really wrote the book, but it got me into the writing process." A friend in the publishing industry suggested he write a series of police detective novels, which he did under a pen name for several years. Finally DeMille decided to give up his day job as an insurance fraud investigator and commit himself to writing full time -- and under his own name.

  1.  A very interesting spy story 8 April, 2013 On Junglee.com
    As it is with any of Nelson DeMille's books The Talbot Odyssey is a gripping and hard-to-put-away book. The story itself is full of twists and unexpected discoveries. The main character in this book reminds me a lot of John Corey from the other DeMille's book series. The Talbot Odyssey is a proper cold war spy story, so whoever finds this subject interesting and likes Nelson DeMille's style of writing will surely find this book worth a read.
