Product description

Review

This is an honest account by someone (he seems at the time to have been a bit of a ne'er-do-well) who tried to play spy without knowing what the word meant and landed himself in boiling-hot water. The book, which is as exciting as any novel, proves a useful moral: leave this business to the pros. --Colonel Raymond Russell (ret.) Counterintelligence Corps, U.S. Army

"A taut manhunt." -- Guardian

"It's outrageous that an educated man and a gifted writer like Mr. Mathews could make such a public confession of such shameful activities."-Q. Kuhlmann, author of "The Eye of Anguish: Subversive Activity in the German Democratic Republic"

"So what you have at the end of the day is a book that's easy to like, an unusual pleasure: an American expatriate spy fantasy, and a very entertaining novel. Of course it is a novel. Right?"--New York Times

"A taut manhunt."--Guardian
