“In the cat and mouse, twists and turns and tradecraft of modern technical espionage and counter-espionage (and now the field of Cyber and Information Warfare), Eric Haseltine’s book once again reminds us of the high stakes and brilliant personalities involved in the relentless and often life and death struggles around intelligence and national security. The lessons of this book are to be neither naive nor complacent, especially against a determined and capable adversary.”
—Admiral William O. Studeman, U.S. Navy (Retired), former Director NSA, Deputy Director of Central Intelligence and CIA
“A thrilling narrative from a context of advanced technology and secrecy. The story is quite entertaining and the lessons are utterly enduring.”
—Admiral Eric T. Olson, U.S. Navy (Retired), former Commander, United States Special Operations Command
“Real life spy-vs-spy page turner whose lessons are important today.”
—Bruce Schneier, internationally renowned security technologist and bestselling author of Click Here to Kill Everybody: Security and Survival in a Hyper-connected World
"All the power and intrigue of a cinematic thriller...An immersive, dramatic, and historically edifying work." —Kirkus
