Now back in print?a taut spy thriller from "The New York Times" bestselling author of "The Company"
With the publication of his "New York Times" bestseller "The Company," Robert Littell re-established his position among the highest ranks of writers of literary espionage novels. In "The Debriefing," long out of print until now, Littell offers another novel of exquisite suspense.
Stone is the head of an elite arm of the Joint Chiefs of Staff?and a master of the psychologically sophisticated art of debriefing. When Oleg Kulakov defects from Russia, handcuffed to a sealed diplomatic pouch, it's Stone's job to find out if he's genuine. As Stone uncovers Kulakov's darkest secrets, he penetrates Russia itself to learn the chilling truth . . . a truth that tears his own world apart.
