Best-selling suspense novelist Nelson DeMille grabs the reader by the throat and doesn’t let go with this novel of political and military intrigue. The Charm School begins with a young tourist meeting an American PoW who has a harrowing story to tell. He describes a Cold War nightmare — the charm school, a KGB conspiracy right in the heart of America. As the plot intensifies, the Americans and the Soviets mobilize to take each other on, while single players gather their resources and take what could be their last stands.
