Summary, etc.:
As powerful and riveting as a John Le Carre thriller, The Man Nobody Knew uncovers the hidden life of legendary CIA spymaster William Colby. The consummate American soldier-spy, Colby took on the government's dirtiest assignments without question - until the day he defied presidential orders and revealed to Congress the CIA's "family jewels" - their darkest, deepest secrets. Told by his son Carl Colby and featuring a who's who of the intelligence community as well as top journalists and writers, Colby's indelible story unmasks the lies, myths, truths, sacrifices and causalities of a covert spy.
