Sloppy research. Don't rely on this book.
Sloppy research ruins a good topic. The writing style is smooth. I like how the story of Soviet spies is confirmed by the Venona papers.<BR/><BR/>HOWEEVER, the research is sloppy. If the publisher had a fact checker, he or she should have been fired. <BR/><BR/>Inexcusable errors. The CPUSA slogan was "Communism is 20th Century Americanism." Morgan says "Communism is Americanism."<BR/><BR/>It is Moiseye Olgin (variation of Moses), not Misha Olgan (variation of Michael).<BR/><BR/>Harry Gold lived in a house on Kindred Street with his father and brother. He did not live in an apartment.<BR/><BR/>The Federal women's prison at Alderson is in West Virginia, not near Seattle.<BR/><BR/>With mistakes such as these, can anyone trust the details in this book.<BR/><BR/>Shame on the writer and the publisherWas this review helpful?
