In the Enemy's House:The Secret Saga of the FBI Agent and the Code Breaker Who Caught the Russian Spies

Howard Blum

In 1946, genius linguist and codebreaker Meredith Gardner discovered that the KGB was running a network of spies inside the United States, whose goal was to infiltrate American intelligence and steal military and atomic secrets. Over the next decade, Gardner and FBI Agent Bob Lamphere worked together on Verona, a top-secret mission to uncover these Soviet agents. But they began to suspect that a mole was feeding Moscow information about Verona, and they raced to unmask the traitor. Getting to that mole was one thing, but doing so without tipping the Soviets off that their codes had been broken was quite another. From bestselling, Edgar Award winning author Howard Blum (American Lightning, 2008).
