The New Spymasters

Inside Espionage From The Cold War To Global Terror




In The New Spymasters, the first real account of how modern espionage works, we follow riveting stories of dramatic missions and the larger-than-life characters who undertook them. These were moments when success - and ultimately life or death - depended on whether the right person was in the right place . . . at exactly the right time.
