About The Book
Reviewed & released by the CIA, opening a window on the actual world of espionage — elusive identities, sophisticated gadgetry, triple-think strategies — “Spy Dust” reveals more about US intelligence techniques abroad than most published works of nonfiction. Moscow, 1988 — the twilight of the Cold War. The KGB is at its most ruthless & has indisputably gained the upper hand over CIA. No one knows how. Ten CIA agents & double-agents have gone missing in the last three years. They’ve either been executed or they’re unaccounted for. At Langley, several theories circulate as to how the KGB seems suddenly to have become telepathic, predicting CIA’s every move. Some blame the defection of Edward Lee Howard three years prior & suspect that more high-placed moles will be unearthed. Others speculate that the KGB’s surveillance successes have been heightened by the invention of an invisible electromagnetic powder that allows them to keep tabs on any touching it: spy dust. CIA officers Tony Mendez & Jonna Goeser join to head a team of technical wizards & operational specialists, determined to solve the mystery that threatens to overshadow the Cold War’s final act. Working against hostile forces, as well as unfriendly elements within CIA, they devise controversial new operational methods & techniques to foil the KGB, & show the extraordinary lengths to which US intelligence is willing to go to protect a source, then rescue him when his world starts to collapse. At the same time, Tony & Jonna fall in love. During an odyssey that began in Indochina 15 years before & ends in an operation in the heart of the Kremlin’s Palace of Congresses, “Spy Dust” catapults readers from the Hindu Kush to Hollywood, from Havana to Moscow, but cannot conclude until its protagonists are wed in rural Maryland. At a time when people have many questions about the role of intelligence services & what’s being done in their name, “Spy Dust” gives hope for the espionage battles of the future.
