display_description When the Queen's life is threatened, it takes a remarkable CIA agent to save her Blackford Oakes has never been afraid of obeying orders. During the war, it's what kept him alive. When he leaves the air force for Yale, Oakes is studious, temperate, and polite. He knows how to follow rules-but he also knows the secret to breaking them: Never tell a little lie when a big lie will do. He's exactly the man the CIA is looking for. Just before Oakes graduates, an old friend recruits him to work for the Company. His military background, knowledge of French, and family in London make Oakes a perfect choice for the most glamorous role the CIA has to offer: deep-cover agent. When his 1st assignment reveals Soviet espionage inside Buckingham Palace and a plot against the young Queen, Oakes will throw the rulebook out the window. Saving the Queen is the 1st book in the Blackford Oakes Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
