Wanted to read the book from cover to cover in one sitting...It's that good!!!

First, I read "Confessions of a Spy: The True Story of Aldrich Ames". That book was excellent. It was written with input from Ames, himself. Kind of from his point of view. I decided to read "Circle of Treason" next. This book was written by individuals who were responsible for catching Ames, from their perspective. Both books are written in exquisite detail, and both books seem to corroborate, and at times, reveal even more details on both sides. I read these books at home and at work. I hated having to put my book down, because these are genuinely intense, at least to me. My advice...start with Confessions of a Spy and proceed on to Circle of Treason, just for sequential reasons. You will get to know Aldrich Ames in the first book, and then, certain events and plot points come together in the second. I am certain that you will find these books to be very interesting. Happy reading.
