There is a rumor that the real CIA agent who inspired the character, Jim Hunt, in the novel LIFE OF A DOUBLE AGENT has been contacted by the CIA for another mission to go to Russia and bring Edward Snowden back to the U.S.
Many readers of LIFE OF A DOUBLE AGENT believe the story is an autobiography of the author. Mr. Kerr has admitted that his business career and his Peace Corps assignment in Russia were the inspiration for part of the fictional character, Jim Hunt. What if Jim Hunt was actually a composite of two real life characters, one a businessman based on the author and one a real life CIA agent who worked for many years as a double agent? And what if the real CIA agent is now being assigned the mission of retrieving Edward Snowden?
Sounds like the basis for the next spy story by Mr. Kerr. Or maybe it is a real CIA mission in the making.
