A True Story of Espionage

Posted: August 19, 2011 in Introduction

 I’ve written an ebook available in pdf, epub and mobi formats.  It’s a memoir about my experiences as a double agent for the FBI in the 1980s. The ebook contains 63 minutes of embedded audio in ten of its seventeen chapters.

Most of the upcoming posts will be brief excerpts from chapters, some with audio.
