"In addition to harming U.S. interests, Chinese human and cyber espionage activities provide China with a method for leaping forward in economic, technological, and military development.”—Larry Wortzel, U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, 2009

As America obsessed over Soviet spies, China quietly penetrated the highest levels of U.S. government and research: nuclear secrets and national security were equally at risk. Today, in addition to traditional spies, technology, and sources, the U.S. is targeted by China's sophisticated cyberspying capabilities as well. Join renowned intelligence author David Wise as he reveals the full story of China's many victories and defeats in its ongoing espionage war with America. To write his new book Tiger Trap: America's Secret Spy War with China, Wise interviewed key insiders in the FBI and CIA as well as Chinese agents and people close to them to gather the unvarnished stories of Chinese espionage. Wise will cover cases including: FBI informant Katrina Leung, who had sexual liaisons with and betrayed her Bureau handlers; Wen Ho Lee, who was indicted for stealing secrets, but ultimately was only found guilty of improperly handling restricted data; and the West Coast spy ring sentenced in 2010. Wise will share the honey traps, double agents, and disturbing objectives of the rapidly emerging Asian superpower.
