"For half a century, the case of Isaiah Oggins, an American brutally murdered in 1947 on Stalin's orders, remained sealed in the secret files of the KGB and the FBI - a footnote buried in the rubble of the cold war. In 1992, it surfaced only briefly, when Boris Yeltsin handed over a dossier to the White House. But the real story of what happened to Isaiah "Cy" Oggins, one of the first Americans to spy for the Soviet Union, remained an elusive mystery, even to his own family." "The Lost Spy charts Cy Oggins's evolution, from his birth in 1898 in a Connecticut mill town to his graduation from Columbia, to recruitment by Soviet operatives. Enlisting in Stalin's secret service, Oggins embarked on his odyssey in 1928. In Berlin, Oggins posed as a wealthy antiquarian dealer to run a strategic safe house. In Manchuria, Oggins served behind enemy lines, spying on the Japanese occupiers and their emperor."--BOOK JACKET.
