Review by: LionheART Publishing House on Nov. 03, 2013 : star star star star
Deep, thought-provoking, shocking in places, the narrative is a little boastful in places yet in many others, very humble; which lends authenticity to what is a fascinating and gripping personal account of intrigue and political manoeuvring and shenanigans of life at the very highest US political level. Back Channel gives a unique perspective on KGB assassins, embassy socials, Lubyanka prison, the Cuban missile crisis, the jungles of Vietnam, Dr. Martin Luther King, nuclear testing and a murderous Vice President with an eye on the Oval Office.

Flashes of humour and wit , together with a well-placed sense of irony, are not overdone and help to provide a thoroughly informative yet entertaining read. Highly recommended.
