This was an audio book...A young American tourist driving his fast car through Europe before the fall of the Soviet Union. On his way to Moscow, he runs across an American POW from the Vietnam War who tells him about a camp dubbed the Charm School where American POWs and other kidnapped Americans are forced to teach Soviet KGB agents to think, act, walk and talk like Americans. When the rich kid reaches Moscow he calls the US Embassy to pass on this information and to get help as he feels he is being followed and targeted by the KGB. But when the air attaché, Sam Hollis, gets to the hotel the tourist is not there & the KGB swears he never arrived, but was killed in a car accident before reaching Moscow. Hollis's investigation lands him in big trouble with the KGB & he winds up being taken to the Charm School along with collegue Lisa Rhodes. The rest of the book tells about others being held there, and trying to effect an escape. Good listening!
