Angleton was a legend in the time of spies. Founder of US counterintelligence
at the end of World War II, ruthless hunter of moles and enemies of America,
his name is synonymous with skullduggery and intellectual subterfuge. William
F. Buckley Jr. presents a subtle and thrilling fictional account of the
his early involvement in the World War II underground to the waning days of the
Cold War, Angleton pursued his enemies with a cool, calculating intelligence.
Convinced that there was a turncoat within the CIA itself, he confused his
enemy by deceptive feints in order to distort his real objective: to capture
and expose a traitor. The result was near-victory for American Intelligence—and
defeat for himself.
A brilliant re-creation of his world, Spytime traces
the making and tragic unmaking of a man without peer and, in the end, a man
without a country to serve. Download and start listening now!
