About this title:

Synopsis: Beyond Espionage...Just Short of Treason....

This was a great adventure and it is a great book.

This is a true story.

In 1989, we were three Special Agents working in Seattle from an unofficial outpost pitted against an international network of criminals who were trying to smuggle a super computer out of the United States to the Soviet Union for God only knows what....

The espionage phase had been completed, and now the Soviets needed to get the technology to complete their work. The most efficient way for them to do that was to buy it directly from the U.S. If they couldn't buy the complete weapons systems, they could get the design tools to build them... and be years ahead of the game.

"....he couldn't fully assimilate the contempt that we had for him, perhaps just as a matter of self- preservation. We had to keep working him as a snitch. We all thought of him as nothing less than a traitor to the United States. In wartime he could have been tried and shot for selling out his country."

Since that time, the world has changed. Though the players are different, the challenges remain the same for the Special Agents of the Office of Export Enforcement.

If you have ever wanted an honest, inside look at a Commerce Department investigation, then read this book.

About the Author: Jerry Hobbs is a retired Special Agent, criminal investigator, from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Export Enforcement's San Jose Field Office.
