In the April 5, 2007 issue of Rolling Stone, Saint John Hunt detailed a number of individuals implicated by his father including Harvey, as well as Lyndon B. Johnson, Cord Meyer, David Snchez Morales, David Atlee Phillips, Frank Sturgis, and an assassin he termed "French gunman grassy knoll", who many presume was Lucien Sarti. The two sons alleged that their father excised the information from his memoirs, "American Spy: My Secret History in the CIA, Watergate and Beyond", to avoid possible perjury charges. Hunt's widow and other children told the Los Angeles Times that the two sons took advantage of Hunt's loss of lucidity by coaching and exploiting him for financial gain. The newspaper said it examined the materials offered by the sons to support the story and found them to be "inconclusive." ". Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket .

Both the author, Charles Willoughby, and the subject of this book, Richard Sorge, have fascinating mixed histories -- Sorge was born in Imperial Russia and moved to Germany in his early youth. Willoughby was born in Germany and moved to the United States during his teenage years. Willoughby had a long and somewhat distinguished career in the Army, both in World War I and World War II (and beyond that into the Korean War). During World War II he became the Chief of Intelligence as part of Douglas MacArthur's staff - interestingly he had always had a fascist background which didn't play much into World War II, but did seem to affect his career in the Korean War. Sorge, on the other hand had ties to the communist hierarchy (family members were associated with both Marx and Engles) and he became a member of the party while recuperating from injuries received in World War I. After being recruited as a spy in the 1920's and participated in a number of operations, both in Germany and later in Japan. In Japan, he was directed to discover information about the Nazi Party and anything to do with anti-communism based in Japan. During this time, Sorge suppposedly warned Stalin about the the Pearl-Harbor Attack and even possibly gave a drop date for Operation Barbarossa which was largely ignored by the Soviets. The Japanese became increasingly suspicious of Sorge's actions and he was arrested in 1941. He was convicted of spying and was executed in 1944.. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket .
