A respectful, introspective expose of a great emissary who became a friend. --Kirkus Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is my first foray into Kindle Unlimited and Amazon’s Whipsersync audiobook integration service, and I was not disappointed.

One thing the book opens the reader’s eyes to is that for the intelligence community, the Cold War was only another phase in a clandestine battle that had been in full swing for decades. Unlike many other books on the subject, Spymaster provides a startling account of life and politics inside the Soviet apparatus, as well as a host of previously unknown information about many of the specific events that defined much of the era of Soviet dominance. The author’s personal association prior to his death of one of the longest surviving members of the KGB opens a cornucopia of interesting facts that would surely have remained buried had it not been for this unlikely friendship.

No doubt a boon to scholars of the era, Spymaster is also a great read for anyone with an interest in the field as it is well written and provides ample and clear explanations.

Not that many revelations. A few hints. Did not hold my attention. I didn't finish it.
