Spies in the Family

The Cold War harboured a lot of spies with people living as double agents and clandestine lives. As time has marched on, secret lives have been revealed and the stories have been able to see the light of day. This is one such story and told by a family surprised by the CIA links to their father.
Eva Dillon tells the story of her father's connection to Soviet General Polakov, complete with codename and alliances. It was rare for Russians to have the freedom of movement from behind the 'iron curtain', but diplomats and officials were given such privileges. The Polakov family were part of that rare troupe.
Eva has researched fifty years of family history and discovered lethal espionage campaigns but also a devoted, lifelong friendship between her father and the Polakovs. From Russia, Europe and USA , covert operators were busy keeping the tensions between two nuclear superpowers to a simmer.
If you are a fan of highly readable, interesting non-fiction books then this is for you.
