Message from Absalom book.

Message from Absalom book. The biography of Anne Armstrong Thompson says that she traveled extensively, and from her descriptions, I believe it. She has a fine attention to detail that was very realistic, and it was very interesting to see Bulgaria (and a few other places later in the book) from her eyes. My copy of this book was my grandmother's, though I've just gotten around to reading it now. I am intrigued by the author.

  • This is an "oldie but goody" I have re-read it several times over the years but my library stopped carrying it. Since it wasn't available on Kindle, I bought a used copy. The story is set in midst of the U.S.--U.S.S.R. cold war . No cell phones, no GPS systems , no computers. The main character, Susannah Clarke, a retired CIA employee, traveling in eastern Europe with a tour group gets caught up being ask by a former friend to get a message out of the country. The KGB gets involved and the whole tour group is suspect. The main KGB agent, Col Alexi Azarov, seems attracted to Susannah but is he or is he just using that to catch the message carrier? After many twists and turns with people who are not what they seem to be, both good and bad , she is finally on her way home only to have the plane she is on hi-jacked. The plane is taken to a mid eastern desert and the passengers used as hostages to trade for imprisoned Palestinians. Col Azarov shows up later to confer with the hi-jackers. A trade is made by a Red Cross negotiator for most of the passengers but Susannah and new Israeli friends she has made among the hostages are left behind. A commando raid comes to rescue them and Col Azarov is shot and left in the sand to die as Susanah flies away. She delivers her message to the White House and goes home to live her life only to be contacted a few weeks later to come up to Camp David to meet with the President to find out the "real story" of Absalom and his "message" The ending is satisfying even if a few more chapters would have been nice. The one thing that dates this book for me is ......they all smoke a lot.

  • This is a reread of a book I read years ago. It was just as good as I remembered and suddenly the villains are back in style as they are Russian and Middle East terrorists. It just made me realize the more things change the more they stay the same.

  • I have loved this book for 30 years. It was my first "grown up" book and has been my favorite ever since. I read my copy until it fell apart. So happy to have it on my kindle. Very much recommend if you love spy thrillers.

  • Two thumbs up! I read this book back in the 70's and I just read it again. The story was as good as I remembered. The characters are smart, careful and resourceful..... just the qualities needed, if they hope to have a chance of surviving the very dangerous cat and mouse game being played. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • I have been trying to remember what book this was for 2 weeks and finally came up with the title. This is a wonderful story of courage, honor and love that I remember from almost 30 years. The author did an amazing job with her characters and that does not begin to go over what she does with the plot.

  • I have loved this book for years! I have a paperback that is falling apart, so I "splurged" and got a hardcover. It is old, but came in very, very good condition. Exciting cold war story for any of you who have never read it.

  • Like Anne's writing. Read her books when I was a kid and still enjoy reading them again. They are just as good the second time around.

  • Wish I knew what happened to Anne Armstrong Thompson. Her third, final novel mentioned that she was working on her fourth. Wish there had been many more.
