Agent Under Glass Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Agent Under Glass

Agent Under Glass is a political thriller based on the realities of the times in which the action takes place, specifically the period immediately preceding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It is the story of a patriotic young FBI agent who is recruited against his will into a CIA/Mafia plot ostensibly designed to assassinate Fidel Castro. The action ranges from Washington, D.C., to Chicago, Tampa and Miami, New Orleans and Dallas, Mexico, Cuba and the Caribbean islands. The protagonist, James Eamon Foley, is menaced by forces unknown for reasons unclear, gets help, and finally extricates himself from the illegal black operation in ironic congruence with the assassination of President Kennedy.

Were the two disparate plots interlinked merely as a quirk of history or by more sinister influences at work? Agent Under Glass at last sets the record straight, laying bare the "dirty little secret" at the heart of the murderous conspiracy that culminated in the atrocity in Dallas.
