The Debriefing: A Novel of Deceptionby Robert Littell
Synopses & Reviews
With the publication of his New York Times bestseller The Company, Robert Littell re-established his position as one of the top writers of intelligent, ironic, and always entertaining espionage thrillers. After many years The Debriefing is finally available again as Overlook publishes Littell's classic spy novels.
From the secret meeting rooms of Washington to the interrogation chambers of the KGB, The Debriefing is a novel of exquisite suspense and dazzlingly tense drama. Stone, first name unknown, is the Head of Task Force 753 — an elite arm of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — and a master of the sophisticated art of debriefing. When Oleg Kulakov defects on a mission from Russia, handcuffed to a sealed diplomatic pouch, he is brought to the United States and it is Stone's job to find out if he is genuine. He uncovers Kulakov's every secret, probes the darkest reaches of Kulakov's heart, and penetrates Russia itself to learn the chilling truth...a truth that tears his own world apart.
"Elegant...works like a clock with three sticks of dynamite attached to it." The New York Times
"Only 202 pages long, this story gives us a plot of dizzying complexity — actually two plots mirroring each other, on either side of the Iron Curtain — and, what's better, characters who haven't had the humanity squeezed out of them." Los Angeles Times
