The Washington Post has (very nicely) reviewed The Spy's Son (in the very capable hands of the novelist and former NPR standout Mary Louise Kelly). Her opening is an instant classic.
Bryan Denson tells the tale of a spy convicted of selling secrets to Russia who then hands the work to his son.

I grew up watching Carol Burnett, Tim Conway, Harvey Korman and all the other geniuses on her show. Such a well-deserved honor.

I have to say, The Oregonian's politics reporting team -- which I just joined -- has to be one of the hardest working group of humans I've ever met. Every one of them has astounding expertise.

Nathan Nicholson has done a lot to get his name back after operating as an agent of the Russian Federation. He smuggled notes out of an Oregon prison to his dad, former CIA man Jim Nicholson, who in 1997 became the agency's highest ranking officer ever convicted of espionage.
