Synopsis: Tense, intriguing, & darkly compelling, this is a true story of murder plots, betrayal, & the consequences of impulsive decisions. Bright & idealistic, the son of a former FBI agent, 21-year-old Boyce was adrift in the malaise of the late 1960s. His friend Dalton Lee had become a successful drug dealer looking for the big score. In 1974, Boyce's father helped his son get a job at TRW, a co. that was developing & manufacturing satellites used by the CIA. Less than a year later Boyce & Lee launched a plan to sell the CIA's secrets to the Russians & began a career as Soviet agents. This book draws on 100s of interviews with all the principals involved, on letters, & on materials from Boyce & Lee's eventual trials. A gripping & suspenseful real-life spy story.

From the Back Cover: Tense, intriguing, and darkly compelling, The Falcon and the Snowman is a uniquely American story of betrayal. On the face of it, there was nothing to indicate that Andrew Dalton Lee and Christopher James Boyce were anything but two devout Catholic boys growing up in happy, warm families in one of the most affluent suburbs in America, living one version of the American Dream and facing nothing but the best of futures.Bright and idealistic, the son of a former FBI agent, 21-year-old Boyce was adrift in the malaise and disenchantment of the late 1960s. His high school friend Dalton Lee had wandered from his childhood days as an altar boy to become a successful drug dealer in trouble with the law and looking for the big score. In July of 1974 Boyce's father used his influence to help his son get a job at TRW, a Southern California aerospace company that was developing and manufacturing satellites used by the CIA. Less than a year later Boyce and Lee launched a plan to sell the CIA's secrets to the Russians and began a career as Soviet agents, complete with international intrigue, secret codes, clandestine meetings, and miniature cameras. The Falcon and the Snowman is, ultimately, a dark story of murder plots, betrayal, and the wrenching consequences of impulsive decisions. Intensively researched, it draws on hundreds of interviews with all the principals involved, on letters, and on materials from Boyce and Lee's eventual trials. Robert Lindsey has crafted a suspenseful, extraordinary tale that pulls readers in on the first page and leaves them wanting more by book's end. (6 x 9, 360 pages)
