Angleton was the consummate spymaster, one of the founding fathers of the American intelligence apparatus. But he had blind spots, and truly believed he knew better than the constitution and that his calling elevated him above the normal limits of the law. Those egregious shadow organization exploits and rumors were real, and Angleton was behind most of them. Jefferson Morley's careful research and clear analysis brings the tale of this legendary man in the shadows into focus and maps his accomplishments, failures, and a few unindicted crimes. John Pruden's narration is spot on, even though he did misspeak the name of the president from 2017 instead of 1951 in one place (2:40 into chapter 12). A fascinating and sometimes scary study of one facet of the intelligence world.

Jefferson Morley has dawn every tax payer and citizen a great service through this work. His skill at turning complex research into accessible narrative benefits both the dilettante and expert readers alike.
If you work in government or politics, this is mandatory reading. I wish it was available 30 years ago when I started my career.
