Deep Undercover: My Secret Life and Tangled Allegiance As a KGB Spy in America #spoilerfreebookreview

Brand new book – Published yesterday, March 21st, 2017!

Author: Jack Barsky Foreword: Joe Reilly Contributor: Cindy Coloma

Albrecht Gerlinde (AKA Jack Barsky) discloses his memoir as a Soviet Union spy living undercover in America. Through his extraordinary experiences we learn that it is our relationships that determine who we are, and who we become. We are given answers as to how someone becomes a spy in the first place, intensive training they receive, what their life is like living undercover, and what happens when they are caught. I felt heartbroken reading about Albrecht’s upbringing, and can’t imagine how it must have felt to abandon everyone he loved in order to serve his country in what he thought was a heroic mission acting as a spy. Deep Undercover is a riveting, page-turning, fascinating, poignant adventure. If you like the Bourne movies, and great spy novels, you’ll love this. Happy reading!

Book Blurb:

One decision can end everything . . . or lead to unlikely redemption.
Millions watched the CBS 60 Minutes special on Jack Barsky in 2015. Now, in this fascinating memoir, the Soviet KGB agent tells his story of gut-wrenching choices, appalling betrayals, his turbulent inner world, and the secret life he lived for years without getting caught.

On October 8, 1978, a Canadian national by the name of William Dyson stepped off a plane at O’Hare International Airport and proceeded toward Customs and Immigration.

Two days later, William Dyson ceased to exist.

The identity was a KGB forgery, used to get one of their own―a young, ambitious East German agent―into the United States.

The plan succeeded, and the spy’s new identity was born: Jack Barsky. He would work undercover for the next decade, carrying out secret operations during the Cold War years . . . until a surprising shift in his allegiance challenged everything he thought he believed.

Deep Undercover will reveal the secret life of this man without a country and tell the story no one ever expected him to tell.”
