The lead character, Jim Hunt, works for Dow Chemical. He also works for the CIA as a mole in the Chinese intelligence service, MSS.
Mr. Kenneth Kerr, the author, says the book is fiction. Could he tell us if it is actually an autobiography? It sure sounds real. It starts in Vietnam, where Jim Hunt uncovers a plot to assassinate Bob Hope, and luckily for all of us, thwarts the assassin’s attempt. And it ends in Russia where as a Peace Corps volunteer, working for the CIA, he is given the mission to shut down a secret nuclear reactor producing weapons grade plutonium. In between he spends a lifetime as a businessman and a CIA mole penetrating China’s Ministry of State Security. One of his missions for the Chinese is to smuggle top-secret electronic surveillance software from the NSA out of the U.S. Remind you of Edward Snowden?
The book is an easy read, highly entertaining, and it sure sounds like the author knows a lot about the spy business. Give it a read. It is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover through amazon.com, bn.com, http://www.lifeofadoubleagent.com or directly from the author, personally autographed.
