The fascinating story of a young American amateur who helped the FBI bust a Russian spy in New York named the Funniest Book of the Year by "The Washington Post," sold in ten countries, and to be a major motion picture for 20th Century Fox.
For three nerve-wracking years, Naveed Jamali spied on America for the Russians, trading thumb drives of sensitive technical data for envelopes of cash, selling out his own beloved country across noisy restaurant tables and in quiet parking lots. Or so the Russians believed. In fact, this young American civilian was a covert double agent working with the FBI. The Cold War wasn t really over. It had just gone high-tech.
"How to Catch a Russian Spy" is the one-of-a-kind story of how one young man s post-college adventure became a real-life US counter-intelligence coup. He had no previous counter-espionage experience. Everything he knew about undercover work, he d learned from "Miami Vice" and "Magnum P.I." reruns and movies like "Ronin, Spy Game," and anything with "Bond" or "Bourne" in the title. And yet, hoping to gain experience to become a Navy intelligence officer, he convinced the FBI and the Russians they could trust him. With charm, cunning, and a big load of naivete, he matched wits with a veteran Russian military-intelligence officer who was recruiting spies on American soil, out-maneuvering the Russian spy and his secret-hungry superiors. Along the way, Jamali and his FBI handlers cast a rare light on espionage activities at the Russian Mission to the United Nations in New York and earned a solid US win in the escalating hostilities between Moscow and Washington.
Now, Jamali reveals the whole engaging story behind his double-agent adventure from coded signals on Craigslist to the Russian spy s propensity for Hooters Buffalo wings. Cinematic, news-breaking, and hilarious ("The Washington Post"), "How to Catch a Russian Spy" is an armchair spy fantasy brought to life. Film rights sold to 20th Century Fox for director Marc Webb ("The Amazing Spider-Man, 500 Days of Summer")."
