Publisher Comments:

William King Harvey, a hard-drinking, small-town Midwestern lawyer, earned a reputation as the American James Bond. James Jesus Angleton, orchid grower, Ivy League intellectual, and master of deception, led the hunt within the CIA for the Soviet Union's spies. But Harvey's career fell on hard times over a bizarre and unsuccessful plot to assassinate Fidel Castro. Angleton's search ruined careers, endangered relationships with friendly intelligence services, and virtually paralyzed the Agency's Soviet operations.

Based on scores of interviews and CIA insiders and thousands of pages of previously classified documents, Wilderness of Mirrors is a penetrating account of Cold War intrigue filled with strange doings and even stranger people.

Synopsis:

Shrouded in mystery and deception, the CIA wages a battle against the bewildering, ambiguous world of intrigue called a WILDERNESS OF MIRRORS. It is the history of a secret war of espionage between the Soviet Union and the United States. Despite chills and thaws in the Cold War, this is the only arena in which the two superpowers confronted each other continuously. Martin provides an unprecedented look at espionage plots, both real and imagined, as the CIA struggles against double agents threatening America's national security. The book chronicles the careers of James Jesus Angleton and William King Harvey, both famous CIA officers fighting against the KGB. Each new bit of dramatic, startling information will leave the reader eager more.

Synopsis:

Real-life espionage at its best.
