Stained Glass by William F. Buckley is one such story entrenched in the Cold War. It is full of secret agents, political intrigue and people talking to each other in code. I would compare it to a James Bond movie, except I’ve never seen a I’m old enough to remember a divided Germany and, very dimly, the Berlin Wall. But today’s world is rather different, so it is always interesting to read a book written during those decades of a divided Germany and a worldwide struggle between East and West.

Enjoyed this tale as much as the first and I’m looking forward to reading book 3. I particularly like the straight forward prose and absence of any “bond-like” persona in Oakes’ character. Very believable.

The world is poorer for the author's demise. All the Oakes mysteries have a mischevious voice and are great fun

I had forgotten how broadly talented Bill Buckley,Jr. was.

The Buckley spy novels are different from what one expects of a book of the sort. Real persons of recent history are mixed with his fictional characters in a way that adds a feeling of realism. Expect the text to be salted here and there with long words to look up in the dictionary; for example "tergiveration" which is pretty much the same as "waffling". This particular book examines what the United States and Russia may have done if a political figure had emerged in Germany around the time of the Kennedy administration who was on track to win the election for Chancellor of Germany and who had the means and desire to force German reunification.

I've always enjoyed reading Buckley's essays, whether I agreed with his premises or not. This is the 2nd of his Blackford Oakes novels I've read--I hope to read them all in the chronological order of their publish dates. Having only read 2 books of the series, I have already realized how much Buckley has constructed his stories by using historical events and figures of the time in which the novels take place. There isn't a whole lot of action, but the plots are fairly intricate, and Oakes is placed in circumstances that are at the very least uncomfortable if not out-and-out dangerous. This is adult spy reading at a very high level.

Enjoyable reading.
This is my second Blackford Oakes novel and I found it, well, okay. As you might expect, a Buckley spy novel will be a little more cerebral than most others of the genre. On top of everything else Buckley does, he writes a pretty good, taut, spy novel. Just not a lot of action. The real story, it seems, is how Oakes wrestles with some tough moral dilemmas. Stained Glass will hold your interest but you probably won't be saying "I couldn't put it down!" Nevertheless, it's a worthy and entertaining book from an accomplished author.
