In this memoir of espionage and deceit Kaarlo Tuomi, a Finnish American who had returned to the Soviet Union in 1933, tells of his recruitment by the KGB after World War II.  Because he was born in Michigan, Tuomi had the most prized possessions that Soviet espionage could ask for: an American passport and native fluency in English. The KGB trained Tuomi and sent him back to the United States in the late 1950s as a sleeper agent but the FBI quickly identified him and turned him back against his handlers, using him to feed disinformation into the Soviet Union.  John Earl Haynes, historian of Communism in America and Soviet espionage, and editor of this memoir, will recount the gripping story of this Finnish American caught between the KGB and the FBI.
