William F. Buckley’s bestselling Blackford Oakes novels have set a new standard for stylish espionage entertainment. Now Buckley sends Oakes on his most thrilling adventure yet.

The year is 1964. Faced with a hard-hitting presidential campaign and a deteriorating situation in Vietnam, Lyndon Johnson dispatches Oakes and a swashbuckling soldier of fortune named Tucker on secret missions to Southeast Asia. Tucker is to figure out how to interdict military traffic along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Oakes is to supervise a secret operation in the Gulf of Tonkin, an operation that will give Johnson the excuse he needs for a greater US military role in Vietnam.

Filled with the intrigue, wit, and historical detail that have distinguished the previous novels of the series, Tucker’s Last Stand is William F. Buckley Jr. at his inimitable best.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Tense, chilling, unflaggingly lively…A romp and something more.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “[Offers] fascinating glimpses of such Capitol figures as Abe Fortas, the Bundys, and Robert Kennedy.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Buckley strives with fair effect to ring soft bells on the Martyred Buddy theme familiar to fans of far-off wars since Beau Geste. Sensible spying, with buffoonish Lyndon Johnson for comic relief.”
