Jim Nicholson was the highest-ranking CIA officer ever convicted of espionage. A single father, respected mentor and brilliant case officer, he was also a double agent selling thousands of state secrets to the Russians. However, it was from behind the bars of a federal prison that he conducted his greatest betrayal. Just 12 years after Jim's conviction, his youngest son, Nathan, was arrested for the same crime. Through interviews, private letters, and access to Jim's personal journal, Pulitzer Prize-finalist Bryan Denson pieces together a fascinating family portrait of a father so caught up in his life as a double agent that he manipulated his own son - an army veteran - to betray his country in order to stay loyal to his family.
