Description

A Vietnam era "Catch-22" by the author of "The Company"
Robert Littell is often compared to John le Carre, Alan Furst, and Len Deighton. But in "Sweet Reason," this master of the spy genre takes a dramatic departure to brilliantly satirize career militarists and other absurdities of war.
Somewhere off the coast of Southeast Asia, the U.S.S. Eugene F. Ebersole-a rusted World War II relic whose best days are far past- patrols the waters on a mission to protect American values in this suddenly-not-so-Cold War. The decrepit destroyer's mission is to apprehend or annihilate anything suspicious, but someone on board is preaching peace and the ship's motley crew is not quite as motivated as its ambitious commander.

About Robert Littell

Robert Littell was born, raised, and educated in New York. A former "Newsweek" editor specializing in Soviet affairs, he left journalism in 1970 to write fiction full time. Connoisseurs of the spy novel have elevated Robert Littell to the genre's highest ranks, and Tom Clancy wrote that if Robert Littell didn t invent the spy novel, he should have. He is the author of fifteen novels, including the "New York Times" bestseller "The Company and Legends," the 2005 "L.A. Times" Book Award for Best Thriller/Mystery. He currently lives in France."
