Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An absorbing tale of espionage from the New York Times bestselling author of The Company — now available in paperback.

Robert Littell is a master storyteller of the highest caliber in the ranks of John le Carré, Len Deighton, and Graham Greene. The Once and Future Spy is a tale of espionage and counterespionage that reveals the dirty tricks and dangerous secrets of the subjects Littell knows best — the CIA and American history. When "the Weeder," an operative at work on a highly sensitive project for "the Company," encounters an elite group of specialists within the innermost core of the CIA protecting a clandestine plan, the present confronts the past and disturbing moral choices are weighed against a shining patriotic dream.

Inventive, imaginative, and relentlessly gripping, The Once and Future Spy is Robert Littell at his most original.

Review:

"An unusual, absorbing book that should keep you riveted." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Littel blends history and espionage inventively, and his dialogue and prose resound with high wit....The result is funny and complex but a little silly." Publishers Weekly
