The Widow Spy by Martha D. Peterson

The Widow Spy is the first hand account of a true Cold War spy operation in Moscow, told exclusively by the CIA case offiicer who lived this experience. She was one of the first women to be assigned to Moscow, a very difficult operational environment. Her story begins in Laos during the Vietnam War where she accompanied her husband, a CIA officer. She describes their life in a small city in Laos, ending with the tragic death of her husband. Then her own thirty year career begins in Moscow, where she walks the dark streets alone, placing dead-drops and escaping the relentless eye of the KGB. Experience her arrest and detention in Lyubianka Prison, as only she can relate it. What she reveals in The Widow Spy has never been told.

Interesting, true story from inside the cold war with Soviet Russia. The author endured living in almost poverty like conditions with her CIA husband in Laos,.Then after his death, became part of the CIA. What a life  and  a real pioneering story for a woman of that era. Good overview of that period for younger people who aren't learning much history these days.
