    As good as any fictional spy thriller Howard Blum tells the fascinating story of the race to capture the Soviet spy ring that passed the secrets of the atom bomb to the Soviet Union. The main characters are codebreaker Meredith Gardner and FBI agent Bob Lamphere, and Blum details ho...

    What a book! Especially in light of the years of Cold War that continued for half of a century with the U.S.S.R., and now the "all of a sudden" renewed enlightened interest to Russian espionage. It's a hard book to enter. The first 100 pages are so difficult and personality placeme...

    3.5/5 Didn't enjoy this one as much as I have other works by this author. The topic was a bit drier and I found myself needing to focus on details closer than I have in his other works because I wasn't retaining due to lack of interest in the topic. Nevertheless, I still rounded up ...

    3.5/5 I?d probably give this book closer to 3.5 stars, whatever that means. The subject matter is fascinating. The stories are interesting, but the author?s interest in the way he wants to tell the story sometimes gets in the way of the story itself. The book is a narrative non...

    Howard Blum does an amazing job of giving life to two lesser-known (outside the covert agencies of the west) actors, a dogged FBI agent with a gnawing hunch that the Soviet Union was spying on the US during World War 2, and a brilliant and reclusive linguist and crypt-analyst pretty mu...

    I marked this as both non-fiction and historical fiction as enough of the book deals with historical documents and facts to qualify as non-fiction, but Blum also creates enough details to make the book interesting and readable that some historical fiction is weaved in. While the col...

    As good as any fictional spy thriller Howard Blum tells the fascinating story of the race to capture the Soviet spy ring that passed the secrets of the atom bomb to the Soviet Union. The main characters are codebreaker Meredith Gardner and FBI agent Bob Lamphere, and Blum details ho...

    What a book! Especially in light of the years of Cold War that continued for half of a century with the U.S.S.R., and now the "all of a sudden" renewed enlightened interest to Russian espionage. It's a hard book to enter. The first 100 pages are so difficult and personality placeme...

    3.5/5 Didn't enjoy this one as much as I have other works by this author. The topic was a bit drier and I found myself needing to focus on details closer than I have in his other works because I wasn't retaining due to lack of interest in the topic. Nevertheless, I still rounded up ...

    3.5/5 I?d probably give this book closer to 3.5 stars, whatever that means. The subject matter is fascinating. The stories are interesting, but the author?s interest in the way he wants to tell the story sometimes gets in the way of the story itself. The book is a narrative non...

    Howard Blum does an amazing job of giving life to two lesser-known (outside the covert agencies of the west) actors, a dogged FBI agent with a gnawing hunch that the Soviet Union was spying on the US during World War 2, and a brilliant and reclusive linguist and crypt-analyst pretty mu...

    I marked this as both non-fiction and historical fiction as enough of the book deals with historical documents and facts to qualify as non-fiction, but Blum also creates enough details to make the book interesting and readable that some historical fiction is weaved in. While the col...
