Read full description of the books:This is the story of Brian Regan, an ex-military man working for the NRO, who decided to sell classified information to Libya, Iraq, Iran, and China. It is also the story of the joint effort of the FBI, CIA, NRO, NSA, and various other agencies who assisted in the capture and conviction of Regan, as well as the retrieval of all of the classified information which had been taken.
This is a non-fiction story, but don't let that fool you into thinking it is going to be a dry telling of facts. This book read like a spy novel. It also reminded me of "Catch Me if You Can." It is riveting. It changes throughout the story to tell the story of Regan, and the story of the men and women tasked with catching him. It was riveting!
There is a lot of information given in this book that could be difficult to understand, but Mr. Bhattacharjee gave the hard stuff to the reader in small easy to understand sections. He didn't attempt to dump it all on the reader at once, which made it much easier to follow.
I highly recommend this book to fiction and nonfiction fans alike. Don't forget to read the acknowledgement at the end of the book. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking.
