The imprint of the parents’ trauma is evident in forging the hero of the book’s personality and consequently his protagonist’s need to be strong and never to demonstrate weakness.
The fascination with those unique individuals in the intelligence community was the trigger for this book. People who pay a heavy toll for their commitment to defend their country.
