Publisher's Summary

In this rapid-paced book, a former CIA chief of Soviet bloc counterintelligence breaks open the mysterious case of KGB officer Yuri Nosenko's 1964 defection to the United States. Still a highly controversial chapter in the history of Cold War espionage, the Nosenko affair has inspired debate for more than 40 years. Was Nosenko a bona fide defector with the real information about Lee Harvey Oswald's stay in Soviet Russia, or was he a KGB loyalist, engaged in a complex game of deception?

Critic Reviews

"[H]e vividly recounts the chess match between the rival intelligence agencies during the opening salvoes of the Cold War, and it’s as cloak-and-dagger as any LeCarre fan could hope--double-agents, miniature cameras hidden behind neckties, microfilm, and other trappings of the spy game abound in this fascinating and fast-paced real-life thriller."

GREAT Book. Historic Missteps

This book is worth every second of your time. It shows how valuable information can get lost, extracted, and misinterpreted in a variety of ways.

Good Info, Bad Listen

This is one of the books that would be very interesting to read or if someone else would have narrated the book. The author has a very dry and monotone voice. This makes it difficult to listen to and to pay attention to. In comparison to other books about the CIA this is more about the author grandstanding and his memory as he remembers it. Too bad it is interesting information about a specific period of time.
