Essay Topic 1

Thomas Chelgrin is introduced for the first time despite having been discussed several times between Alex and Joanna.

However, when the reader meets Chelgrin, he is almost sympathetic, as though he is as much a victim as his daughter.

2. Why do you think Thomas Chelgrin might have been a victim? Use examples from the text to support your answer.

3. Now that the reader knows how much Thomas Chelgrin has given up in his life for his country would you think him very patriotic? Why or why not? Use examples from the text to support your answer.

Essay Topic 2

Peterson admits that he and the CIA brainwashed Alex into going to Kyoto to find Joanna so they could follow well-placed clues to bring them to St. Moritz. Peterson says the CIA needed Chelgrin to die before he could be elected President, but could not do it themselves for fear it would tip off the Russians that Chelgrin has been compromised for many years.

1. How would you feel and what would you do if you were Alex?

2. Peterson, a C.I.A. agent freely admits to Alex being brainwashed by the C.I.A. Discuss what you think the possibility is that in real life the C.I.A. would do something like this.

3. Should Alex be considered a hero for taking care of a national security problem for the U.S. government in spite of doing it unknowingly? Why or why not?
