Product description

Review

"A riveting first-hand account of one of the darker moments of Cold War espionage, with plenty of James Bondian flourishes: a CIA-backed spy mission to the roof of the world... snowstorms and deadly frostbite... and a missing nuclear-powered eavesdropping device that threatens to leak lethal contamination into the Ganges. What a ride!" Frank Snepp, former CIA agent and author of Decent Interval and Irreparable Harm; "A marvelously detailed account of one of the most exotic and hazardous intelligence operations of the Cold War....A rare treat for anyone interested in mountaineering, secret intelligence, or tales of high adventure." William M. Leary, author of Project Coldfeet: Secret Mission to a Soviet Ice Station; "A lively and fascinating account that rivals Fleming and le Carre." David Rudgers, author of Creating the Secret State
