A twisting slide down the espionage rabbit-hole. The plot is as intricately wired and as a Cold War missile. It was constructed by one of the CIA’s top operatives.

Abstract:
In 1968, Istvan Pinter, a young Hungarian, escapes from political prison and heads for the Austrian border. Thirteen years later, Frank Manion's first assignment as a newly-minted CIA case officer is to recruit a Russian diplomat the agency calls "Bagatelle". Frank travels to Rio de Janeiro to work with an older female officer, Julie d'Andrade. He pursues his target over three continents and when the case is compromised he leaves love and Julie behind and risks his life to salvage the operation. What went wrong? To find the answer, Manion has to go back to where it all began.

Reviewer: stanley schweiger
A very interesting & exciting read. A direct, terse, right-to-the-point, no-frills look at the cold war. The descriptions of how CIA operatives "hire" their agents is fascinating. The characters are well-drawn and the book grabs you right from the start. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
