From the Inside Flap
In 1999, a Russian listening device was discovered inside a conference room on the same floor as the Secretary of State’s office. For months, the SVR listened in on classified information being discussed among US government officials. Who installed the device? How was the feat accomplished? In the dangerous counterintelligence world of espionage, Robert Booth translates his experience and his insider’s knowledge into a nonfiction thriller that should disturb every reader. “When a friend of yours turns out to be one of the country’s few international spies, that really wakes you up to the reality of counterintelligence matters. What’s the worst sin at the bottom of Dante’s Inferno? Those who betray a trust.”
