Abstract:

"Spies have long been a source of great fascination in the world of fiction, but sometimes the best spy stories happen in real life. Russians Among Us tells the full story of Putin's escalating espionage campaign in the West, the Russian 'deep cover' spies who penetrated the US and the years-long FBI hunt to capture them. This book also details the recruitment, running, and escape of one of the most important spies of modern times, a man who worked inside the heart of Russian intelligence. In this thrilling account Corera tracks not only the history, but the astonishing evolution of Russian espionage, including the use of 'cyber illegals' who continue to manipulate us today and pose a significant threat to the 2020 election."--

In the summer of 2010 a group of Russian deep cover sleeper agents were arrested. It was the culmination of a decade-long investigation, and ten people were swapped for four people held in Russia. Corera tells the full story of Putin's escalating espionage campaign in the West, and the Russian 'deep cover' spies who penetrated the US. He tracks the evolution of Russian espionage, including the use of 'cyber illegals' who continue to manipulate us today and pose a significant threat to the 2020 election. -- adapted from jacket
