This book was the complete story. It starts with William Fisher aka Rudolf Abel, and tells how the failed spy was caught. It goes into about him and who he was associated with. How messages were sent to the Soviet Union. Then it tells Powers and Frederic Pryor complete stories. There is more to know than what was in the movie.
This book goes a long way to explain that insanity, and how that insane game was played.
Well written. Very, very well researched. Complementary to the movie. Book and movie both highly recommended.
The structure of the book was a little confusing at times. I felt that the writing was hasty at some points but the story did bring the period to life.
