WITH NEARLY 50 MILLION BOOKS SOLD WORLDWIDE, NELSON DEMILLE IS "A TRUE MASTER." - DAN BROWN
#1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille's chilling, relentlessly suspenseful story of Cold War espionage in the vein of the hit FX show The Americans.
On a dark road deep inside the Russian woods at Borodino, a young American tourist picks up an unusual passenger with an explosive secret: an U.S. POW on the run from "The Charm School," a sinister operation where American POWs teach young KBG agents how to be model U.S. citizens. Their goal? To infiltrate the United States undetected. With this horrifying conspiracy revealed, the CIA sets an investigation in motion, and three Americans--an Air Force officer, an embassy liaison, a CIA chief--pit themselves against the country's enemies in a high-powered game of international intrigue.

Thrilling Cold War Classic
How timely to start reading a book about a school in Russia where they train Russians to be American...and in the news we find 10 undercover Russians who have been living in the US for years. Fantastically written and full of espionage, love, and war...who couldn't love this book? This author really knows how to write a suspenseful thriller.
First and the Standard
This is the first Nelson DeMille novel I read many years ago. Two problems resulted: 1) I became hooked on his books and had to read any and all of his books since. 2) The Charm School, i guess like your first love, set a standard so high that I end up rating all of his novels relative to this one. Hopefully some movie producer will pay tribute to this book and do a movie that stays true to the book!
I also highly recommend "Up Country" and "The Lion's Game" (the prequel to the current release... "The Lion").
The Charm School
This is the best DeMille book I have read. The characters are so believable and the plot is riveting.
