I am going with E here.

It is the sales of the novel, that was regarded by analysts to be the result of the tension during the cold war. Only E conveys that message clearly. Other statements twists the meaning.

Would go for E.
"As a constant threat" is required. Between D and E, E is better.

perceived ....as ..... must be in correct answer choice ---> keep D and E.
What's next is the problem of modifier: what is "regarded by analysts...." is "sales of the spy novel" , not "the spy novel" ---> E stands.

When I first read it, I thought the actual writing of the book was the result of the tensions. But I guess a loose logical assessment would question the mention of high book sales. Therefore, E. very good job gmatstuff.

E might be correct but I don't think the use of "sales" and "their" is correct?
