    Book details

After barely escaping an assassination attempt, Andre Kohl discovers a network of high-level double-dealers--a secret organization of CIA and KGB agents bent on controlling the balance of world power

In this sequel to The Dossier, Andre Kohl, the proficient Paris-based correspondent for a major TV network, is invited to a small dinner party after announcing his early retirement and engagement to Meredith Houghton, daughter of the acting CIA director. What he finds when he arrives at the luxurious hotel is a delightful surprise party attended by major reporters and French politicians, a party just for him. Also just for him are bullets being fired from the back of the room by two unknown gunmen. Kohl is whisked back to the States to contemplate the identity of his assailants, undoubtedly seeking revenge for his role in revealing a rogue CIA operation involving ex-Nazis and an important French wartime collaborator. In order to escape further assassination attempts, the gregarious reporter must give up his powerful chums and even his beloved Meredith to begin an entirely new life incognito. Other writers of intrigue fancy the dealings of major decision-makers; Salinger and Gross can draw on personal experience and have the talent to use it well. They briefly challenge the imagination with an impossibly candid meeting between the heads of the CIA and KGB. Nonetheless, the capable Andre's readjustment to his new, difficult life and the international inquiry into the attempted slaying show how engrossing and credible a novel can be when capable writers skillfully use raw material garnered from their own beats.

In Salinger and Gross's The Dossier , Paris-based television newsman Andre Kohl uncovered CIA employment of former Gestapo officers in South America. Here he learns that he has discovered only a portion of a grander, more devious conspiracy involving both the CIA and the KGB. When his new bride is badly wounded in the second attempt on his life, Kohl reluctantly agrees to protect her by faking his own death and assuming a new identity. But the CIA also wants him to penetrate to the core of the conspiracy. More compact and somewhat less violent than a Ludlum thriller, with somewhat more developed characters, this provides similar entertainment and should be popular.

  • By physical therapist on January 17, 2013

    Really interesting story of a man who must change his identity to keep himself and his wife alive. Great details on the process and wonderfully written.

    In reading the first few chapters, I found what seemed like references to a previous story. Searching Amazon, I found the Dossier by the same authors and ordered it. In contrast to the other review, I found the scene setting and characters reminiscent of my own times in Paris and Washington in the mid-80's, and quite engrossing. My only regret so far is that I hadn't found the Dossier first.I often find myself backtracking through an author's previous works after stumbling upon a later effort: Ted Bell, Robert Crais, Robert Ludlum, Clive Cussler, for example.

    I read his first book "The Dossier" and didn't think much of that book, but was hoping this one would be better. I decided to not even finish the book, the writing just wasn't that great and the story line wasn't interesting.I wouldn't recommend it.
