Spy Lost: Caught Between the KGB and the FBI
Kaarlo Tuomi
Enigma Books
In this memoir of espionage and deceit a Finnish American who had returned to the Soviet Union in 1933 tells of his recruitment by the KGB after service in World War II. Because Kaarlo Tuomi was born in Michigan he had the most prized possession Soviet espionage could ask for: a legitimate American passport and native fluency in English. Tuomi was trained and sent back to the United States in the late 1950s as a "sleeper" but he was quickly identified and "turned" by the FBI that was soon feeding him doctored intelligence to transmit to his KGB bosses. This is an amazing double agent story told by the protagonist in his own words. The book has an introduction by historian John E. Haynes, co-authored with Harvey Klehr, of "Spies" and many other books on espionage. Paperback, 151 pages.
