“Like juicy tales you hear from someone sitting at a seedy bar on a lazy afternoon…Its plot as intriguing as a James Bond movie and its style as straightforward as journalism.”
"In Ruse, a self-described 'maverick freelancer' who worked nearly a decade for FBI counterintelligence has spun an irreverent and timely tale of international intrigue and deception. Robert Eringer's adventuresinclude his unsuccessful attempt to lure CIA defector Edward Lee Howard out of Moscow to face American justice. Instead, he encounters a dysfunctional federal bureaucracy that fails to act before Howard dies--or was killed--in Vladimir Putin's Russia. It's a story that Eringer suggests holds some intelligence lessons for September 11, 2001."
"Ruse encompasses both the unique mind-set of intelligence officers and their lexicon. Eringer's true-life account offers first-hand insights into their communication, thought process, and terminology. Truly an insider's book!"
