Descrizione prodotto


"Uncovered is the life story of eighty-three-year-old cold war veteran John Sager. An operations officer in the Central Intelligence Agency, his postings to pre-revolutionary Iran, Gamal Abdel Nasser’s Egypt, and Nikita Khrushchev’s Soviet Russia thrust him into the midst of America’s most tumultuous half-century since World War II.

The author’s memoir reveals an up-close vision of the nitty-gritty of cold-war intelligence work: recruiting and handling agents, devising ways to insert them into the hermetically sealed Soviet Union, managing the CIA’s Moscow station, and running intelligence-gathering operations in the United States. Over his fifty-plus years of service, he experienced much of the CIA’s silent struggle with America’s principal adversary. Now he shares those reflections, through the eyes of a born-again Christian.

But the story is more than that. Sager combines his spy craft with a passion for fly fishing, an avocation that took him to Russia’s remote Kamchatka Peninsula, where he found the long arm of the Russian intelligence service waiting. And when he returned to the United States to stay put, he reconnected with the love of his life in a marriage that lasted barely five years, cut short by tragedy."


John Sager is an avid fly fisherman and a retired United States intelligence officer, whose services for the Central Intelligence Agency, in various capacities, spanned more than a half-century. He now lives in the Covenant Shores retirement community on Mercer Island, Washington. There, the walls of his bachelor pad-he calls it Joan's Gallery-are adorned with her exquisite water color paintings, acrylics, and batiks, everlasting reminders of the girl of his dreams.

5.0 su 5 stelle A great read; a real page-turner 6 luglio 2013

I don't often read biographies because I find them heavy going. This one is fast-moving, exciting, educational, and truly relevant. Most Americans don't know a whole lot about life in the CIA and this opens a window on that. For those who are fishermen, there's a great saga about his fly-fishing experiences in Russia showing how they continue to keep track of Americans even after things opened up. And then there's the family story. So it's all a good read.

An interesting real life look at something we usually learn about only in thriller novels and movies. It seems to start out slowly, but that is just careful building of background necessary to really understand some of the workings of the CIA.

Mr. Sager takes us through his childhood, CIA career and some interesting retirement years. Each chapter is a story in itself. I found it hard to put down.

Great read, combining adventure, humor, pathos and excitement as we follow a spectacular 50 year career with the CIA. It all proves that good authorship can start at 80!
I hope this exciting guy gives us more real soon

Interesting stories about John's service with the CIA plus much about his later life. I found it entertaining when he described his gliding experiences as, I too, am a glider pilot and remember him in the early 70s flying in Washington state.
