The Last Spymaster Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Last Spymaster

Jay Tice, one of the legendary chiefs of the CIA in the Cold War, is actually a traitor. Convicted of selling secrets, he's languishing in the formidable Allenwood Federal Correctional Complex in Pennsylvania, when he suddenly disappears. His locked cell is empty. Current CIA Deputy Chief Lawrence Litchfield engages a top CIA hunter, Elaine Cunningham, to track him down. She's a woman with her own psychological baggage, but an artist in probing the psyches of her prey. As she zeroes in on Tice, she becomes his target, and discovers nothing is as it seems. Instead, she finds, in the clandestine world of black ops, there are illegal arms dealers, information traders and cloaked cover ups far more dangerous to the United States and the world than one man's treachery. She joins forces with Tice to track down the real traitor before Muslim terrorists take possession of a shipment of top-secret, cutting-edge technology that can destroy automated intelligence networks worldwide.
