The rise and fall of a legendary spymaster; Brims with erudite espionage and intelligent intelligence; The ultimate in spy novels - real characters and studied speculation; James Jesus Angleton was an enigma, a secretive man whose power was at its peak during the height of the Cold War. Founder of US counter-intelligence and hunter of moles, his name has become synonymous with skulduggery and subterfuge. Angleton pursued his enemies, real and imagined, with a cool, calculating intelligence that was eventually to lead to his downfall. A brilliant re-creation of the world that included Soviet defectors, the traitors Burgess, MacLean, and Philby, and American presidents, Spytime traces the making - and the unmaking - of a man without peer and, at the end, a man without a country to serve.
