The Unmasking of Robert Philip Hanssen, the Most Dangerous Double Agent in FBI History
The Bureau and the Mole is the sensational New York Times bestseller that tells the inside story of FBI counterintelligence agent Robert Philip Hanssen, a seemingly all-American boy who became the perfect traitor, jeopardizing America’s national security for over fifteen years by selling top-secret information to the Russians. Drawing from a wide variety of sources, Pulitzer Prizewinning author David A. Vise shows how Hanssen betrayed the country’s most closely guarded secrets in a devious game of deceitsimply because he could. Vise also interweaves the story of FBI director Louis B. Freeh, who led the government’s desperate search for the betrayer among its own ranks, from the false leads, to the near misses, to its ultimate, shocking conclusion.
Compelling and provocative, The Bureau and the Mole is a harrowing tale of how one man’s treachery rocked a fraternity built on Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrityand how the dedicated perseverance of another brought him to justice.
