Turn-by-Password, or Classics of Illegal Intelligence

The book acquaints the reader with the golden portfolio of Russian foreign intelligence and the most infamous sleeper agent representatives of this low-key profession. These are people, so to speak, of a particular nature. In addition to their outstanding intellect and incredible psychological stamina, they are able to discover the astonishing artistic contours of their human natures. Sleeper agents who became ambassadors of foreign countries in foreign countries, businessmen, gangsters and even milk sellers on the streets of Vienna are well-known in the history of Soviet and Russian espionage. Year after year, living out the life of another, these people are constantly putting their own lives at risk. All this in the name of their homeland, which they often don’t even have a moral right to turn to for help in life or death situations.

The life of a sleeper agent very often remains a secret behind seven seals even after it has expired. That is why to receive access to documents on the heroes of an invisible front (and especially access to the people themselves!) is good fortune for any author. This author has, as many would, chosen joyfully to share their good fortune with the reader.
