Spy: the story of modern espionage by Clifford Irving( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No one living in the modern world can escape the impact of espionage. Through "illegal" agents who operate with no official protection, the espionage organizations of major powers--Washington's CIA, Moscow's KGB and London's MI6--conduct a silent, invisible search for secret information about the political and military activities and plans of other countries. Clifford Irving and Herbert Burkholz explain how these agents are chosen and trained, describe the dangerous and lonely lives spies lead in a world where success earns no recognition and the price of failure is usually death. The authors discuss the activities of Richard Sorge in Japan before and during World War II, the atom spy rings of the 1940s in England and the United States, Oleg Penkovskiy, Rudolf Abel, Kim Philby, the U-2 affair, the seizure of the U.S.S. Pueblo, and much more. This is a fascinating history of the moments of excitement and high adventure and the months and years of harrowing tedium, revealing the truth about spying in the 29th century.--Adapted from book jacket

"On June 19, 1982, James Campbell, successful Houston lawyer, and Virginia, his wife of forty years, were found by their grandsons, brutally shot to death in their own bed.

The most likely suspects, Cindy Ray Campbell, the victims' third daughter, and her survivalist boyfriend David West, had an alibi the police could not crack. Until a sexy stripper-turned-private investigator coaxed a confession from West and the most complex murder case in Texas history exploded into national news."--Page 4 of cover

The ultimate caper story, novelist Clifford Irving''s no-holds-barred account of the literary hoax that stunned the publishing world, is the story of his faked "autobiography" of Howard Hughes.
