It is 1957, West Berlin. US Army Captain Eric Vieler is assigned to oversee the identification, vetting, development and deployment of every-day German citizens --- as spies. While the Berlin Wall is not yet a reality, the Cold War tensions between the western allies and the Soviets in East Germany are very real. It's a chess board with many pieces --- agents, handlers, influences and ...double agents. It's a time marked by deceit, betrayal, shame and loss, both personal and national. "Trust and Betrayal: Tales of Cold War Espionage" provides an insider's first hand, honest view of the dangerous time, the conflicts --- internal and external --- the truth and lies, and the pressure and intrigue that marked Vieler's real-life experiences. His is not a life, or a story, like any other.
