Summary

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 reveals the secret life of this man without a country and tells the story no one ever expected him to tell.

Enjoyed it very much.

Well written, understandable language. Interesting story that sucks you in very quickly. I'd recommend even to people who aren't necessarily interested in this topic, because it was a pleasure to listen.

Amazing

Loved it. The ending is so good. Definitely listen at 1.5x or 2x speed. Reader is way too slow.

Very interesting story, well read.

Fascinating story of a life lived in parallel time to my own, but completely different. Raised in East Germany after the War, this brilliant young boy finds a pathway to success in a most unusual way: by agreeing to be a spy. Lots of twists and turns. And a surprising ending.
