One of your country’s spies has been caught in the act and captured by the enemy—provided you’re not going to deny their existence, sometimes the only way to get them back is to make a trade. Hopefully the enemy hasn’t gotten too much information out of them yet. In 1960, an American U-2 spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union (USSR) and the pilot, Gary Powers, was captured by the Soviets. The United States had also captured a Soviet spy, Rudolf Abel, five years earlier, so the countries made a secret trade in 1962.

In this pack of spy rings, members have infiltrated enemy governments, troops, and intelligence agencies to trump their opponents. Ethel Gee THE P Harry Houg hton ORTL A When N D RIN :........
