Washington Washington
The book is an interesting tale regarding Soviet and US FBI espionage tactics, methods, and field methodology during the cold war regarding nerve gas development. If you are interested in how the FBI runs informants and some of the higher level decision making that is involved behind this process, this book will give the reader some insight behind those scenes. However, the book is pretty poorly written by the author with atrocious grammar and style, and the excessive and redundant details regarding the FBI folks leaves the reader feeling like the author is overly concerned about painting a favorable view of the FBI. The point of view is definitely one of simple-minded admiration, with absolutely no reflection or higher level insight. The book is probably 50 pages longer than it needs to be as well. Easy read though, and you can rip this off in a couple of sittings.

This is an excellent work of journalism; unbiased, found many pieces that fit together to make the entire story which others may have never tried to find. Reading the notes at the end really gives another view of how much of the information was collected. The author tried time and again to access certain pieces and hit stone walls of intel classification but somehow was still able to ferret out a lot of surprising details. I had a lot of questions from my own research which this book answered and exceeded my expectations. Excellent work!

Wise wrote an interesting account covering many years. The factual components of the story appear well researched. However, the author wanders off into speculation that the materials supplied by double agent Cassidy actually caused the USSR to develop more deadly nerve gas. Given the now disclosed facts that the USSR had a massive chemical and biological research and production effort, it is unlikely that any of the well scrubbed stuff given to the USSR had any real impact.

What is outstanding is the appreciation for the level of effort and detail put into a spy case. The endgame is very inconclusive as the two Mexican leftists who were engaged in espionage on behalf of the USSR were allowed to depart the US and escape prosecution. Probably because the case came to a head at an inopportune time when the FBI was being scrutinized for searches and intelligence gathering related to anti war activists.

Cassidy, a non commissioned officer in the Army, does a great job under tremendous stress in convincing the Russians that he is really a loyal ( or at least loyal to the dollars offered) agent. Hollow rocks, microdots, shortwave radios, scanning cameras and invisible ink are all introduced into the process.

Highly recommended.

Simply put this is a very easy read. The subject matter is based on a real life FBI case and is so much better than watching some idiotic reality TV show. I have already recommended to friends and associates that the get and read this book. Unlike TV today and it's continual bashing of the FBI and Department of Defense this lays out a spy thriller based on a true success story. It should also serve to remind everyone that while the Soviet Union went away the Russian's and other countries probably continue their efforts to steal our knowledge, technology, and secrets. The only problem in this book is that treasonous spies got away.

This is a good read that focuses on a narrow slice of the intelligence drama that took place during the cold war. Fans and students of espionage and covert operations will find this an enjoyable and worthwhile read.
