Abstract:
On August 8, 1993, a single bullet to the head killed Freddie Woodruff, the Central Intelligence Agency's station chief in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. Within hours, police had a suspect: a vodka-soaked village bumpkin named Anzor Sharmaidze. And an explanation: it was a tragic accident. Yet the bullet that killed Woodruff was never found and key witnesses have since retracted their testimony. Pullara believes the answer lies in the spy games that played out on Russia's frontier following the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. Georgia was a den of intrigue, had a big Russian military base and was awash with Soviet agents. -- condensed from publisher info
