The Master of Disguise: My Secret Life in the CIA, chronicles the cloak and dagger operations Antonio and his fellow spooks mounted against the Russians, the East German Stasi and other enemies during the Cold War. In a real “wilderness of mirrors” Mendez used elaborate covert operations to defeat hostile surveillance, culminating in a toe-to-toe face off with the KGB using “Moscow Rules.” The book is peopled with the CIA’s technical officers, double agents, moles and assassins, all scrambling for the secrets that will tip the balance of power. The descriptions of cover and tradecraft used by the CIA’s Office of Technical Service (OTS) are the most concise ever published.
