Washington, DC stands at the epicenter of world espionage. From the Mt. Vernon study of spymaster George Washington to the Cleveland Park apartment of the "Queen of Cuba," Ana Montes, the city holds a constellation of clandestine sites unknown to even the most avid history buffs. Until now.
Spy Museum Board Members H. Keith Melton and Robert Wallace are revealing all this evening as they discuss their new book, Spy Sites of Washington, DC. Wallace, former director of the CIA's Office of Technical Service, and renowned intelligence historian, Melton, will share some of their favorite incredible true stories of derring-do and double-crosses that put even the best spy fiction to shame.
You'll follow in the winding footsteps of moles and sleuths, trace the covert operations that influenced wars hot and cold, and understand the tradecraft used by traitors and spies alike in the do-or-die chess games that changed the course of history.
The book will be available for sale and signing at the event.
