Description
A award-winning, psychological post-Cold War novel-adapted as a TNT series starring Sean Bean-Legends is the next blockbuster spy novel from Robert Littell. Martin Odum is a onetime CIA field agent turned private detective in Brooklyn, struggling his way through a labyrinth of memories and past identities-"legends" in Agency parlance. But who is Martin Odum? Is he a creation of the Legend Committee at the CIA's Langley headquarters? Is he suffering from multiple personality disorder, brainwashing, or simply exhaustion? Widely considered one of the true grand masters of American spy fiction, Robert Littell shifts focus from the broad Cold War canvas of his international bestseller The Company to the life of a single CIA operative caught in a contradictory "wilderness of mirrors" in which remembering the past and forgetting it are both deadly options. From unforgettable opening to astonishing ending, Legends again proves Littell's unparalleled prowess as a seductive storyteller. Robert Littell was born, raised, and educated in New York. A former Newsweek editor specializing in Soviet Affairs, he left journalism in 1970 to write fiction full time. He has been writing about the Soviet Union and Russians since his first novel, the espionage classic The Defection of A.J. Lewinter. He is the author of 18 novels, including the critically acclaimed The Debriefing, The Sisters, The Once and Future Spy, the New York Times bestselling The Company, and Legends.
