Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

A letter that piqued the interest of San Francisco FBI agents in 1984 provided a lead that would eventually finish the Walker spy ring, led by John Walker and involving his son and brother. J. Charles brings humanity to the account without distracting from the facts, giving unique voices to the many people involved and revealing the personalities of the principals in the case, both agents and suspects. Walker, in particular, makes an interesting antagonist; he was adept at luring others into his work and proud of his spying. He was also good at following the thought processes of both agents and spies. The case, and how it affected relations with the Soviets, is a surprising slice of Cold War history.
