Summary The remarkable story of the man who ran Russia's post-Cold War spy program in America. This is a direct account of what the man known only as Comrade J did after we all assumed the spying was over--and of what Putin and Russia continue to do today. From 1997 to 2000, Comrade J was the highest-ranking operative of the KGB's successor agency in the United States. He directed Russian spy action in New York City, and personally oversaw every covert operation against the United States and its allies in the United Nations. He recruited spies, planted agents, penetrated security, manipulated intelligence, and influenced American policy, all under the direct leadership of Boris Yeltsin and then Vladimir Putin. Then in 2000, he defected--and revealed one more secret: for the previous two years, he had also been a double agent for the FBI. He has kept his secrets--until now.--From publisher description.
