Catching a Russian Spy: The Case of Aldrich Ames

January 25, 2020
From: 02:00 PM to 03:30 PM

The FBI and CIA suspected Russia had a dangerous spy working in the US in the early 1990s. But who was it? The newest book in Bryan Denson’s “FBI Files” series for younger readers, Catching a Russian Spy: Agent Leslie G. Wiser Jr. and the Case of Aldrich Ames, explores the race to uncover the traitor. Denson will be joined by Leslie Wiser, Jr., the agent who ran the Ames operation out of the Washington Metropolitan Field Office, and Sandy Grimes, a CIA officer who was determined to find the evidence that Ames was spying. Together they will explain how Ames betrayed his country, caused US assets to be killed, and ultimately was brought to justice. 

Catching a Russian Spy will be available for sale and signing at the event. (The book is recommended for young readers age 8-13.)
