Today, still living undercover in the United States, the man credited by the CIA as the only person in the Western world who single-handedly demolished an entire enemy espionage service--the one he himself managed--takes aim at an even bigger target: I was more familiar with the history and theology for that episode, and flew through the pages, riveted by Pacepa's information.

Pacepa does make a good case for this, but the book is a little too breathless, a little too sensationalistic and a little too tone-deaf to the rigors disinformatin the fact-based community in America to be the tour de disinfoemation it could have been.
