Recommended to Carissa by: Rob Chong
Recommended for: adults/ non-fiction readers
Read in October, 2008

This is certainly a first rate spy story, and it is all true, which makes it a very cool non-fiction read. There are a couple very risque chapters in the middle, although they do help to place Bob Hanssen's mind. This book really does a great job at explaining his personality, insecurities and ego, and how they play into his espionage. It also helped me understand more about the politics at the time, an just more in general about the F.B.I. and parts of its history. I would recommend it to adults who enjoy non-fiction.
