Ultimate Spy by H. Keith Melton

Ultimate Spy is the insider's guide to the secret world of espionage.

Peek inside the covert world of espionage — its history, high-tech spy gadgets, and aspects of spycraft from surveillance to assassination. This updated edition includes the latest on the revelations from Wikileaks and Edward Snowden and is filled with stunning photographs that show details of equipment such as spycams, bugs, weapons, and drone aircraft.

Ultimate Spy also includes information on what it takes to be a spy: how spies are recruited, the training they receive, and tricks of the trade. A glossary explains abbreviations of important intelligence and security organizations and defines many common terms used in espionage.

From early espionage to the latest high-tech spy equipment, Ultimate Spy belongs on the bookshelf of mystery lovers, tech fans, and anyone who wants to know how modern spycraft works.
