Publisher's Summary

Journey back to the height of the Cold War in this non-fiction Audible Original. It’s 1984. US intelligence officers battling the Soviets know that KGB spies could be anywhere. Anywhere except the FBI. Because the Bureau has never been compromised -- until now. In this noir, spy thriller, we follow the life and mystery of Richard W. Miller, the first FBI agent arrested for espionage against his own country.  

When Miller is spotted with a suspected Soviet spy and former FBI Informant, it sets off a chain of events that will threaten national security, shake public faith in the institutions meant to protect Americans, destroy a family, and derail careers. Featuring the voices of Congressman Adam Schiff, Richard W. Miller’s family, former US Attorney Robert Bonner, and veteran reporter Linda Deutsch - and based off of extensive research, including Miller’s own prison diaries and trial transcripts spanning 7 years. Expect intrigue, suspense, and a modern exploration of a remarkable past event.

Way too long

Repetitive. Boring. Repetitive and boring. Six episodes would have been enough. Helped me fall asleep

Truly Enthralling

I loved this podcast. Spy stories and what they did is always interesting especially when you hear the CIA was run by Mormons and because of this, this so called spy was able to do what he did. He effectively was a Mormon misfit who wanted to be James Bond was allowed by the agency to nearly filfill his dreams and then was prosecuted because it showed the agency for what it was.

stick with it. it gets better.

you know how an american prime time documentary will spend 5 minutes going over the story thats already been explained then 2 minutes progressing the narrative. and then another 5 pandering to the lowest form of the english language just to make sure we get it. yes its like that. good narration though.

Fascinating story, slow start

Absolutely worthwhile your time, though for the first two episodes I was not best pleased with the repetitve pace and twisting structure of the storytelling. Very glad I stuck with it (finishing at 4am!!): a part of history worth knowing and reflecting upon.

Fascinating and compelling.

This was really well presented and a thoroughly compelling listen. I was so intrigued that I found myself conducting further research into the R.W. Miller case. I would definitely recommend this series.
