Town Hall Seattle says
When Oregon native (and high-ranking CIA officer) Jim Nicholson was convicted of espionage in 1997, his story was seemingly over–until he spied again from behind bars. Now, investigative journalist Bryan Denson, who reported on Nicholson’s activities, trial, and sentencing for The Oregonian, has written a comprehensive account of this double agent. In The Spy’s Son, Denson expertly spins the true tale of Nicholson, who had collaborated to spy against the U.S. for Russia, and how he used his visiting son to continue sending intelligence information from jail. Denson will offer details of their case–a real-life version of FX’s hit TV show “The Americans”–diving into the complexities of a father-son relationship that transcends country loyalties–and prison bars–to compel two generations to betray their country.
