KIRKUS REVIEW

From Liberty and Official Detective, this is a recapitulation of Germany's spy activities in America from 1939 on -- and largely the story of the F.B.I's William Sebold whose unafraid and patient investigation led to the roundup of 32 Nazi agents. Sebold's experiences at the Hamburg spy school, his return to America where he contracted one agent after another, his discovery of Nazis at work in army camps, plants, shipyards, air fields, and eventually the kill. Further material covers the careers of Vonsiatsky-Vonsistsky, white Russian Fascist, Kunze, Bahr, who posed as a refugee on the Drottningholm, and the eight Long Island saboteurs. The newspapers have aired these stories before, and this is not too distinguished a retelling, but it does give coverage on this war's espionage in book form.
