It’s a spy novel- no it’s a memoir that reads like a spy novel! DEEP UNDERCOVER by Jack Barsky with Cindy Coloma begins by stimulating the readers curiosity, something every book should do, as to whether or not the first few pages are truthful. I had to double check the dust cover to remind myself that this was not fiction but a very real tale of a spay who lived secret lives.
I did watch the 60 Minute news cast regarding the life of Jack Barsky thus all the information presented in this book was new to me.

Generally speaking DEEP UNDERCOVER is the story of Albrecht Dittrich who became a spy for the KGB. What lead him to becoming an agent and what happened during the time he worked for as a Russian spy is detailed in this book. But what does Jack Barsky have to do with Albrecht Dittrich? That you must read the book to discover.

Jack Barsky’s life reads like the television series “24”, a soap opera, and a news documentary combined. Is that even possible? It takes someone like Cindy Coloma, the collaborator, who has written both fiction and nonfiction to present such fascinating information in an entertaining and informative way.  To say that I enjoyed the book is an understatement.

DEEP UNDERCOVER- My Secret Life & Tangled Allegiance as a KGB Spy in America by Jack Barsky with Cindy Coloma is a great spy novel that is not a a spy novel. It is a true story of a  man who learned to love America. Written by Marsha L F Randolph
