* DubInducedPlotHole: In the US printing of ''Skeleton Key'', the names of the two CIA agents, Turner and Troy, were changed for unknown reasons. They are mentioned in passing three books later in ''Ark Angel'', but the renaming was forgotten about and their original names were used, which would have been confusing for anyone not aware of the change.

* ANuclearError: In ''Skeleton Key'', General Sarov plans to detonate a nuclear bomb atop the rusting Russian nuclear submarines in the naval base, which are armed with nuclear missiles. Sarov intends this disater to appear to be an accident, caused by the current Russian government failing to properly maintain its nuclear fleet. The resulting fallout cloud will contaminate most of Western Europe and allow Russia to return to the glory of its Soviet days, or so Sarov believes.
