Dust stains to edges. Light edgewear to jacket. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 240 pages.

The story of an espionage operation mounted by the FBI against the Soviet Union that ran for twenty-three years. Lured by a double agent working for the United States, ten Russian spies, including a professor at the University of Minnesota, his wife, and a classic "sleeper" in New York City, were sent by Moscow to penetrate America's secrets. Two FBI agents were killed, and secret formulas were passed to the Russians in a dangerous ploy that could have spurred Moscow to create the world's most powerful nerve gas.
