"A Very Principled Boy" (And A Traitor)

Basic Books

He was bright, he was patriotic, he was trusted in American intelligence services. 

So why did Duncan Lee turn against the United States? 

That's a question that has been wrestled over for several generations. 

Mark A. Bradley, himself a CIA insider, considers the case anew. 

His book is A Very Principled Boy: The Life of Duncan Lee, Red Spy and Cold Warrior.
