True, and frightening. It takes place during the seventies and eighties, but has affected the country's security as recently as the new century. I am saddened by the reality of hostility in our world, and I wish it weren't so, but this story brought it home. I am grateful for the sacrifice this man made for our country, and I wonder what is going on today. But then , maybe I don't.

I listened to this book with Libby (11:54). I wonder how the author was able to gain access to all of the details in the book. I read this book as a test to see if Libby would allow me access to the entire book on my Lenovo laptop.

Could be a dry read for some; identifying with the Station officers and the spies is more critical to getting most benefit from the story, gleaning the human equation from all the "007" intrigue and operations. Also a valuable window into what tipped the scales during the Cold War and the economics thereof, as well as life of Soviet citizens in the 70s & 80s.
