The story of aCIA agent who has worked on the Middle East during the Cold War. He had several false identities called legends. He now presents one of his legends as a private eye and is asked to g find the missing husband of a young woman living in Israel. She needs a divorce so she would too free to marry again. The narrative jumps between many legends in the protagonist’s background. In the end the CIA is manipulating the downfall of the Soviet Union.

An intriguing novel set in America, the action is split between the periods of the War of Independence in the late 1770s and the late 1980s. The events of the former times have an echo in the contemporary one, revealed by Silas Sibley’s researches into a distant relative and his own work for the CIA and his suspicions of a plot to cause an explosive ‘accident’ in Tehran in a bid to discredit Iran’s leadership. In a tense chase, Silas attempts to evade capture by those seeking to detonate the ‘accident’ and to stop it through contacts within the CIA, while not revealing their plot to the newspapers as he considers himself a patriot and does not want to embarrass the country. Littell’s writing keeps you in suspense throughout and leaves Silas’ outcome in balance until the final pages.… (mais)

Mostly reprints of communiques from various organizations protesting the Soviet occupation. Precious little narrative of the events.

An early work by Littell that tells the story of a Russian slacker and what happens to him when he actually attempts to do something "real". Intriguing story line and a number of interesting characters keep the reader engaged until the novels rather Orwellian ending.
