At 26 years old, Eric O’Neill was recruited for the case of a lifetime: tasked with spying on a master spy and bringing to justice one of the most damaging double agents in American history. FBI agent Robert Hanssen was suspected of sharing US secrets with the Russians for nearly two decades, and now O’Neill was trapped in a one-on-one relationship with him—Hanssen was his boss— and also his target. Join O’Neill as he reveals what it was like to play a real life cat-and-mouse game with a mole. He’ll share the insights that he gained from the benefit of hindsight as he wrote his new book Gray Day; O’Neill truly conveys the intense and incredible position he found himself in with a volatile and brilliant spy who had kept one step ahead of the FBI for years.
Gray Day will be available for sale and signing at the event.
The event is free, but an rsvp is required. Registration opens on April 20.
