9781561000319: Breaking the Ring

For 17 years, the Soviets knew every military move we made! That is how damaging the Walker family spy ring was to our national security. For the better part of two decades, John Walker, his son Michael, brother Arthur, and friend Jerry Whitworth comprised the KGB's greatest asset. Meticulously detailing the FBI investigation which finally broke the case, John Barron reveals how close the United States came to disaster - and how the repercussions may linger for decades.

From the Inside Flap:

The Bookcassette® format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.

From AudioFile:

A letter that piqued the interest of San Francisco FBI agents in 1984 provided a lead that would eventually finish the Walker spy ring, led by John Walker and involving his son and brother. J. Charles brings humanity to the account without distracting from the facts, giving unique voices to the many people involved and revealing the personalities of the principals in the case, both agents and suspects. Walker, in particular, makes an interesting antagonist; he was adept at luring others into his work and proud of his spying. He was also good at following the thought processes of both agents and spies. The case, and how it affected relations with the Soviets, is a surprising slice of Cold War history.
