From the cover: “In the early morning of February 10th, 1962, James B. Donovan began his walk towards the centre of the Glienicker Bridge, which then linked West Berlin to East. With him, heavily guarded, walked Rudolf Ivanovich Abel, master spy and for years chief of Soviet espionage in the United States. Approaching them from the other side, under equally heavy guard, was Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 pilot, whose exchange for Abel Mr. Donovan had negotiated. Every part of the story is as fascinating as the exciting end. Abel was the most gifted, the most mysterious, the most effective spy in our in our time. His trial, which began in a Brooklyn United States District Court and ended in the Supreme Court of the United States, chillingly revealed the methods and successes of Soviet espionage.”
