Overview

Walk in the steps of a spy, if you dare. Undercover Washington leads you on a tour no one can confirm or deny, into a wilderness of mirrors where secret agents have lived, worked, loved and even died gruesome deaths.
Explore the spy capital of the world and enjoy brush contact with such targets as:
The mailbox at the corner of 37th and R Streets N.W. ─ where Aldrich Ames, who worked for the KGB while serving as the CIA’s chief of Soviet counterintelligence, signaled his handler he was ready to make a drop.
Foxstone Park ─ where “Doctor Death” Robert Hanssen dropped his last documents, just before his fellow FBI agents arrested him.
National Cryptologic Museum ─ a window into the secret world of codemaking and codebreaking, right next door to the National Security Agency.
Hotel George ─ the Washington hotel where the only Soviet general to survive Stalin’s blood purge of Red Army officers died a mysterious death.
The Exchange ─ the D.C. restaurant where KGB mole Karl Koecher and his wife Hana met with a swinging couples group for an exchange of wives and government.

    interesting

    The book was informative and somewhat interesting to me. As far as I could tell the book was well researched and possibly an lure for the "Spy Museum".
