Double agent Aldrich Ames fed the KGB sensitive information for many years, resulting in the death of many U.S. agents in Russia. By way of rare and invaluable interviews, Pete Earley has formulated the most accurate and detailed summary of the events that led to Ames's arrest. Edward Holland painstakingly guides the listener through the complicated web of Ames's life, from his early experiences in Burma with his double agent/professor father to his ultimate arrest. Holland's grandfatherly narration of Ames's transcendence from wide-eyed schoolboy to frustrated and self-justifying double agent almost convinces the listener that Earley was simply sick and tired of participating in a world of bureaucratic incompetence and hypocrisy. This sympathetic interpretation depicts a man who lost the meaning and purpose of his work and, ultimately, his direction in life. B.J.P. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
