Hanssen s horrific career in espionage on behalf of the USSR and, later and briefly, the Russian republic, that I was familiar with the outlines of the case, especially since I d also seen the film Breach , which features author Eric O Neill as a key character Indeed, those who have seen and recall that film will find many parts of this book very familiar But there was plenty here to find intriguing, from O Neill s background as a low level FBI employee assigned to follow suspects for hours at a time, changing his look as frequently as needed to blend into the background and avoid detection, to O Neill s assertion that Hanssen s crimes make him the first cyber spy of the modern era.Indeed, it s that dual structure O Neill is simultaneously trying to recreate the tension of his experiences trying to cope with the volatile Hanssen and assist the mole hunt that uncovered him in its final weeks, while at the same time trying to educate the reader about cyber espionage and laying the groundwork for his final argument that makes the book slightly less compelling than it could be The author jumps back and forth between the attempt to take down Hanssen, and events before and after that mole hunt some directly relevant, but others, that occurred long after Hanssen had pled guilty and headed off to a lifetime behind bars, that felt like a reach It s not that the argument about cyber espionage as a significant threat, and O Neill s argument that Hanssen was early to identify the weaknesses of the FBI s technology and to exploit them, of course is, eventually, compelling But the constant shifting from one theme or idea or experience to another ultimately made this a book that was distracting to read Just as I was becoming engaged, the author veered off on a new tangent also important, also interesting but nonetheless something that felt like a distraction The bottom line Imperfectly structured, but nonetheless fascinating In some ways, indeed, I found O Neill s post FBI career and current involvement in anti cyber espionage fresh and intriguing than the rehash of the Hanssen affair I assume the latter is there because, hey, he s never been able to tell his own version of the story and he can relate it to his broader points, but the latter were really what I ended up finding the most fascinating Where are our weaknesses today, and are we aware that they ARE weaknesses I couldn t help feeling that however fascinating this book could become, there remained a lot left unanswered with respect to that crucial question, if not about Robert Hanssen I d recommend this to anyone who isn t very familiar with the Hanssen case and who hasn t seen Breach , in particular The you know, the repetitive about half to two thirds of this book will
