Harlot's Ghost by Norman Mailer

Harlot's Ghost is a fictional account of events within the CIA centered on operative Harry Hubbard, a CIA agent who flees to Moscow when he believes his life is in danger. In the city he pauses to reflect on his life and to read through a stolen file recounting his experiences with the Agency. These files include many reflections on the Cold War, the Kennedy assassination, and other staples of the time with an ambiguous and conflicted tone.
