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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Talbot Odyssey Is there a bad Nelson DeMille? As usual, another of his books that you can't put down. It is full of twists and turns and keeps you guessing untill the very end. And if you thought we were safe from Y2K, read The Talbot Odyssey, it will give you something else to think about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Talbot Odyssey After reading The Gold Coast, and Plum Island and finding them both equally entertaining, I bought The Talbot Odyssey and again was not disappointed. I found the book intriguing, exciting, with its spy plot and quite the page turner. Impossible to put down. DeMille is an excellent writer and knows how to captivate a reading audience to the last page. Another successful and enjoyable story with many twists and turns to keep you guessing. Bravo! Am looking forward to the next book with anticipation! Keep up the fine storytelling!

If the American government topples today, it will be a good day for Talbot. He is a mole, planted by the Russians in the CIA for 40 years — and known to American intelligence. In The Talbot Odyssey, best-selling political thriller author Nelson DeMille paints a fierce portrait of espionage and suspense, sex and death as the Soviets prepare to unleash a terrifying new weapon — and one sassy ex-cop burrows deeper into the mole’s top secrets to attempt to halt a full-scale war.
