Tells the fist person story of Verne Lyon, an Iowa farm boy away at college who is inducted into the CIA to spy on his professors and fellow student as part of MHCHAOS, the then largest domestic surveillance program in American history. Framed by his handlers for an airport bombing the young Lyon is dispatched to Cuba to subvert the Castro regime and, when he balks at increasingly nefarious dirty tricks and tries to quit, the CIA kidnaps him twice, finally returning him to American soil and Leavenworth Penitentiary. Today a free man, Lyon details his journey through CIA lies and deceit both to make amends and to reveal the secret workings of government all around us.
