Book is poorly written. 3/4 of book has nothing to do with Ames. Most is the life history of the 2 writers. Of the books I have read about Ames this is definately the worst.

Exceptionally well-written account of the many unsung heroes whose lives were lost as a result of US traitor, Ames. Grimes and Vertefeuille should be given high accolades for the expansive historical account, including never before shared information; while at the same time keeping the reader engaged in the lives of those who were betrayed. Underpinning the entire book is the story of Grimes and Vertefeuille, two remarkable women who worked tirelessly to protect our country and those who were helping to protect our country. They are true American heroes who should be recognized for their remarkable selfless acts.

I expected this book to be more of an account of how they tracked and arrested Aldrich Ames. I have read other books that explain this, but none by authors as close to the case as these authors.
However, this book is excellent at explaining the real-life consequences of Ames's betrayal of the U.S. The reader truly comes to understand the costs of Ames's treason--the Russian lives that were lost because of Ames.
This book standing alone would not satisfy me--I just happened to have read other accounts of how Ames was tracked and arrested. This book is a great compliment to those books.

Most of the book is facts and titles that most people are not aware of or interested in and too much information on subjects that have nothing to do with Ames. I cannot give this book anything but less than one star and certainly not worth the almost $17.00 for the e-book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
