Re: Best Political Thrillers


Follow the conversation about best political thrillers, started here the other day.

I’m currently reading Sleeper Spy by William Safire — bought a secondhand copy years ago, always meant to read it, finally pulled it off the shelf the other day before taking a kid to hockey practice. Starts out very well. Safire, who died this fall, had great range as a writer: He could pen a well-reported political column, a presidential speech, and, apparently, an engaging espionage story.
