In Moscow Station Ronald Kessler goes behind the scenes to show how the entire U.S. Embassy, including the CIA station, was literally riddled with KGB bugging devices. Revealing the inner workings of the two most powerful intelligence armies in the world, Kessler chronicles KGB seduction and sexual entrapment, incompetence and CIA arrogance. HC: Scribner.

This is all you wanted to know about the lurid Marine, spy, and sex scandal that has recently rocked the American embassy in Moscow. After the antics of the poor, young, single, not-too-bright, and not-well-trained Marines sent to guard the Embassy, the Marine motto of semper fidelis ("always faithful") just won't be the same. Critics have said that Kessler, author of Spy Versus Spy (LJ 9/1/88), theorizes beyond his evidence. But that is not the central point. The description of the laxity about security, the demoralizing conditions of the Marines and embassy staff, and the dimwitted Washington bureaucracies in charge of these things is the real story, and on hearing it one doesn't know whether to laugh at the Get Smart atmosphere or to cry. A neat if somewhat padded expose.
