No photos. Really? Disappointing.

That said, short book + novel like fast read = read it in an afternoon. Highly recommend, but it will piss you off as to how inept the FBI was and how long it took to realize there was a mole, let along catch him.

I like the style author used & presentation - only skimming very few parts. After watching Chris Cooper play Hanssen in 'Breach' I was very curious about the man. Devout Catholic, family man, traitor & a sick individual. Too bad the gov't couldn't hang the creep, slowly. They needed him to give up more secrets. Interesting reading for me.
