Summary: Uncovers the secret world of a legendary CIA spymaster, William Colby. Told by Colby's son Carl, the story is at once a probing history of the CIA, a personal memoir of a family living in clandestine shadows, and an inquiry into the hard costs of a nation's most cloaked actions.
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, William Colby's story unmasks the lies, truths, sacrifices, and casualties of a covert spy.
