9780156011242: Spytime: The Undoing of James Jesus Angleton

James Jesus Angleton was an enigma, a secretive man whose power was at its peak during the height of the Cold War. Founder of U.S. counter-intelligence, hunter of moles and foes of America, his name has become synonymous with skulduggery and subterfuge. Angleton pursued his enemies, real and imagined, with a cool, calculating intelligence. Eventually convinced that there was a turncoat within the highest reaches of the U.S. government, Angleton turned all of his considerable skills to finding and exposing him. The result was a near-victory for U.S. Intelligence-and total defeat for himself. A brilliant re-creation of a world that included Soviet defectors, the infamous traitors Burgess, MacLean, and Philby, and American presidents from Truman to Carter, "Spytime" traces the making-and unmaking-of a man without a peer and, at the end, a man without a country to serve.

Review:

Praise for "Spytime""The ultimate in spy novels-with real characters and studied speculation on certain events by Buckley, who met many of the key players-this is a tense, heroic tale of a real Cold War legend."-"The New York Daily News" ""Spytime" is a quiet-time read for those who like their espionage erudite and their intelligence intelligent."-"USA Today"
