I read the book over 30 years ago when I was in High School.
It’s about Christopher Boyce and his minor partner Andrew Dalton Lee. They became spies for the Soviet Union in the early 1970′s.
A few parts in the book have manage to stick in my memory banks.
1) US computers are buried not only to shield them from nuclear blasts, but also to stop any data retrieval from space. It was suggested that Soviet satellites had the ability to read hard drives from orbit.
2) They wanted Boyce to finish college after which they would groom him for political office. They told him that they had been recruiting young candidates for years.
3)They also told him that they would take over this country within his lifetime.
Makes me wonder how the USSR disintegrated with relative ease. Well, a little bit. Not sure there’s evidence of them running our country…or is there?
