Spymaster Startling Cold War Revelations of a Soviet KGB ChiefAn a close friendship with a former foe ex–CIA officer Tennent H “Pete” Bagley whom the Russian asked to help write his memoirsBecause Bagley knew so about much of Kondrashev’s career they had been on opposite sides in several operations his penetrating uestions and insights reveal slices of never revealed espionage history that rival anything found in the pages of Ian Fleming Len Deighton or John le Carr This includes chilling tales of surviving Stalin’s purges while superiors and colleagues did not of plotting to reveal the Berl A different spy story real history V Kondrashev not a spy but a spy handler and perhaps one of the most talented the Soviet Union ever had Very interesting look into the very dark times of early Soviet history and up through the much romanticized for spying times of the Cold War when Kondrashev was at his best A very interesting read told by an author who was at various times Mr Kondrashev's opposite number in the CIA As with much of real history and especially the history of real spies and their handlers the story is a little flat Real spies try to live rather flat and unassuming lives But Mr Kondrashev was obviously exceptionally talented and brilliant so he makes for a tale well told
