Sorry to say not very well written. But, fascinating story, very worthwhile read. Oh. And. Just horrible: the man, his actions, and the obliviousness of the FBI (which I'm not bashing; just noting). Still nothing compares to the Cherkashin book so far.

Pretty solid book, if a bit excessively long. Still, recommended.

Robert Hanssen was perhaps the most costly spy of the Cold War. He was responsible for the betrayal of more than 50 FBI/CIA agents of which 2 were killed and another 12 missing. The dollar cost of the betrayals were in the millions. I'm not really one to read about spies, real or imagined; but this was an excellent book from beginning to end. The arrogance of Hanssen was evident and clear and so were his sexual perversions. He truly led a double life: the good Catholic family man and then double-agent porn purveyor. I got this book from a friend or I would have never read it. 454 pages 4 stars.… (mer)
