Walking the streets of Sante Fe and Albuquerque today, it's hard to believe that these bustling thoroughfares were once on the Cold War espionage front lines. The nearby presence of the Los Alamos Manhattan Project research center made it a hotspot for Russian spies and U.S. counterintelligence. E.B. Held's A Spy's Guide to Sante Fe and Albuquerque uses recently declassified information and maps to give residents and visitors with a real-feel experience of a significant chapter in American history. (P.S. Held is no wanna-be covert agent. He's a retired CIA clandestine office and a former Chief of Counterintelligence at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque. He currently serves as Director of Intelligence and Counterintelligence at the Department of Energy.
