Show synopsis He was a man of such secrecy that it was twewty years before Western intelligence even knew what he looked like. His espionage network stretched to the highest levels of NATO and the West German government. His 'sleeper' spies waited decades before reactivated, and his 'Romeo' spies seduced and used those on the other side. His name is Markus Wolf, East Germany's chief foreign-intelligence officer and the foremost spymaster of the Eastern Bloc, a shadowy legend throughout the cold war and a continuing mystery ever since -until now. Wold details all of his major operations and gives us revealing portraits of Eastern Bloc leaders and the individuals who chose to spy for him. He also tells his own dramatic story, from his childhood in Moscow to his twilight in a crumbling state. A true thriller, full of bombshells and previously secret information, MAN WITHOUT A FACE is not only a gripping autobiography but a stunning and honest examination of loyalty, betrayal, and the long shadow of history.
