Drawn from newly released CIA files, conversations with KGB defector Yuri Nosenko, and interviews with key operatives of the CIA and Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, CIA SpyMaster is the inside story of Agency legend George Kisevalter. This true tale of the man who engineered the CIA's most dramatic successes in the darkest days of the Cold War takes readers behind the scenes of Kisevalter's extraordinary life in espionage. George Kisevalter lived a secret life for six years as the case officer of GRU lieutenant colonel Pyotr Popov, the first Soviet source ever to offer insights into Soviet military intelligence. As case officer in the most successful operation in the history of espionage, Kisevalter played a key role in the interrogation of GRU colonel Oleg Penkovsky, whose information gave President Kennedy the edge during the Cuban missile crisis and allowed Kennedy to defy Khrushchev. Kisevalter also opened the dialogue with controversial KGB defector Yuri Nosenko, who supervised the KGB file on Lee Harvey Oswald. For anyone with an interest in Cold War history, the Cuban missile crisis, the JFK assassination, or the annals of espionage, CIA SpyMaster is a book not to be read but to be savored.
