Book Description

Aug. 16 2004 Classified
Found guilty of treason, two young Americans have been condemned to a life behind bars for the awful betrayal of their country. But how did these drop-outs manage to access the most sensitive US intelligence files and sell their plunder on to the Russians? Governments can cover up virtually anything - it would be almost impossible for a civilian to trespass into this impenetrable world of top level security without assistance. So could it be that someone on the inside wanted them to succeed? Larry Holtz is a run-of-the-mill prisoner intrigued by his two inmates imprisoned for dealing in international secrets, but when he gets involved in a plot to help his friends escape from prison he doesn't appreciate just how far out of his depth he has gone...Factual information files follow the main story, including biographies, witness statements and debriefings - these allow the reader to make up their own mind about the event.
