Reseña del editor:

Spying has always been portrayed as a glamorous occupation. Overworld is where the truth meets the fiction…

Larry Kolb’s life reads like it’s been ripped from the pages of a spy thriller. The son of an American spymaster, Kolb is shown the basics of tradecraft at his father’s knee. He is taught to think, look and listen like a spy. And it is no surprise when the CIA approaches him barely out of his teens. But Kolb declines and instead becomes a highly successful sports agent for athletes including Muhammad Ali, which brings him into contact with some of the world's wealthiest and most powerful people.

But the CIA always get their man. Master spy and CIA co-founder, Miles Copeland, sees the opportunity that Kolb’s tireless globetrotting represents. When Kolb relents and finally takes the job, he is soon embroiled in covert intrigues in Beirut, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Nicaragua, Pakistan and India.

Peopled by larger-than-life characters such as Adnan Khashoggi, Imelda Marcos, Rajiv Gandhi and Ronald Reagan, Overworld is a real-life adventure story, offering a unique and compelling picture of the danger, glamour and psychology of espionage - as well as an extraordinary insight into how the wheels of global power really turn…

Biografía del autor:

Larry J. Kolb was born in Virginia and educated around the world. With Miles Copeland, Kolb co-wrote white papers for the President of the United States and the National Security Council. While running a covert propaganda campaign for Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, Kolb anonymously wrote a widely published series of investigative newspaper stories which electrified India. More recently, he has found himself stuck in a safe house in Florida with nothing to do but listen to the waves roll in and put down on paper the extraordinary story of his life so far.
