Stories of many Americans and how they worked in Russia, specifically Moscow. At first the US didn't want to recruit anybody from Russia in fear that they would be captured, so they were hesitant when they had their second breakthrough with Penkovsky. He gave them everything, even the top secret files the CIA didn't know about. His intelligence was key for President Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis. After he disappeared the CIA went through a tough time where they didn't accept any agents from Moscow because of Angleton. They also employed women as a new strategy. If a spy was caught, they would be considered persona non grata. The Soviets got more creative and set a fire to the US CIA to try to get information. They bugged houses, put microphones in chimneys, and bugged typewriters (none of Moscow's CIA typewriters). Tea and denim jeans were very rare and you could only buy things through connections instead of money. To help Tolkavech not get caught, they created new tech such as quieter, higher quality cameras.
