Two Russian experts on their nations secret services have written an engrossing volume about a century of covert operations by or against Russian emigres living outside the country in the west. From Trotsky on, whose very presence either stood as a symbolic statement against Soviet ideology or who knew much to live. From the days of the Red Terror to Putin's oligarch fueled reality. Squads of assassins, quite often from the same families, have policed the globe undertaking one brazen assassination plot after another, always disregarding global legal realities often on American soil. The book sucks you in with one tale of jaw dropping Hollywood script worthy covert ops after another, and ends with a dark analysis of Putin's current use of the Russian diaspora to further the Kremlin's agenda of global destabilization. Which makes you realize, understanding Russia is a way of understanding Britain and America right now too. What is global is domestic.
