Author Event: Lis Wiehl
About this Event
Calling all True Crime fanatics! Join us on Saturday, September 24th from 1 - 3pm for a special author event!!
New York Times Bestselling Author Lis Wiehl will discuss her newest book A Spy in Plain Sight with Santa Barbara local Don Logan. Afterwards, Lis will sign copies for guests.
On February 18th, 2001, Robert Philip Hanssen was arrested and charged with committing espionage on behalf of the intelligence services of the former Soviet Union. His espionage was described by the Department of Justice as “the worst intelligence disaster in U.S. history.” Now, legal analyst for NPR, NBC, and CNN Lis Wiehl delves into the facts of this fascinating case in A Spy in Plain Sight: The Inside Story of the FBI and Robert Hanssen—America’s Most Damaging Russian Spy.
As a federal prosecutor and the daughter of an FBI agent, Wiehl has a remarkable insider’s perspective on Hanssen’s case. Her research includes exclusive interviews with numerous FBI and CIA agents, both past and present, as well as the people closest to Hanssen—his brother-in-law, his oldest and best friend, and even his psychiatrist. In all her conversations, Wiehl tries to figure out how he did it—and at what cost.
