Bill Buckley’S Latest and Last!

Everyone thought that they’d seen the last of Blackford Oakes, the hero of Bill Buckley’s spy novels, ten years ago. Fans will be thrilled to learn that Last Call for Blackford Oakes , the 11th and last of the series, has just been published by Harcourt. As with all his novels, Buckley connects his plots with real events or people. This one revolves around real life British traitor, Kim Philby, who Buckley turns into one of his most chilling villains. If you’re a Buckley and an Oakes fan, you’re not going to want to miss this one. You can get it here.
