This is one of Archer's earliest efforts that I had missed. It was well worthwhile since Archer doesn't rely on a formulaic approach in his stories. There are enough clues to figure out the McGuffin before it is revealed but that doesn't detract from Archer's masterful style and pacing. Can't wait for his 2018 effort which I don't think is out yet.

Loved this thriller and all of Archer's book

This story is your classic spy thriller with a chase through Cold War Europe. It has a slow start for sure, but once the chase begins, it goes full-throttle. You probably have seen the story mechanics before: non-spy hero framed for crime he didn't commit; hero doesn't know who to trust; hero is underestimated by enemies; secret that can change the world, etc. Despite this, there is a freshness to these ideas for all that is was written in 1986. Adam Scott, while too good to be true at times, is still a likeable hero that you can't help but root for. You won't find anything new here, but that is alright. This story is for entertainment, pure and simple.
