From the Back Cover:

William King Harvey, a hard-drinking, small-town Midwestern lawyer, earned a reputation as the American James Bond. James Jesus Angleton, orchid grower, Ivy League intellectual, and master of deception, led the hunt within the CIA for the Soviet Union's spies. But Harvey's career fell on hard times over a bizarre and unsuccessful plot to assassinate Fidel Castro. Angleton's search ruined careers, endangered relationships with friendly intelligence services, and virtually paralyzed the Agency's Soviet operations.
Based on scores of interviews and CIA insiders and thousands of pages of previously classified documents, Wilderness of Mirrors is a penetrating account of Cold War intrigue filled with strange doings and even stranger people.

About the Author:

DAVID C. MARTIN'S book WILDERNESS OF MIRRORS is now considered a classic of intelligence literature. The book was the product of over two years of interviews with members of the CIA, including legendary spycatcher James Jesus Angleton. Martin lives in Washington, DC.
