The Spy Who Couldn't Spell


This is a true story about a spy named Brian Regan who worked for a United States government agency.  He stole secrets which he tried to sell to foreign countries. It was a well-written, quick read.  I was horrified by how simple it was for the spy to steal secrets and fascinated by how he encrypted his messages and other information.  The author does a wonderful job of describing Brian’s personality and state of mind as well as giving background to other major characters in the story. A real page turner.  I read it in electronic form through our “Libby” app but we also have it in actual book form here at the library.  Check our catalog
