Comrade J : the untold secrets of Russia's master spy in America after the end of the Cold War by Pete Earley( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remarkable story of the man who ran Russia's post-Cold War spy program in America. This is a direct account of what the man known only as Comrade J did after we all assumed the spying was over--and of what Putin and Russia continue to do today. From 1997 to 2000, Comrade J was the highest-ranking operative of the KGB's successor agency in the United States. He directed Russian spy action in New York City, and personally oversaw every covert operation against the United States and its allies in the United Nations. He recruited spies, planted agents, penetrated security, manipulated intelligence, and influenced American policy, all under the direct leadership of Boris Yeltsin and then Vladimir Putin. Then in 2000, he defected--and revealed one more secret: for the previous two years, he had also been a double agent for the FBI. He has kept his secrets--until now.--From publisher description

On a busy Saturday morning in November 1986, in the small southern town of Monroeville, Alabama, a beautiful white teenager named Ronda Morrison was found brutally murdered in the back room of the dry cleaning store where she worked. Several months later, Walter McMillian, a black man with no criminal record, was arrested and then convicted and sentenced to die in the electric chair in a trial that lasted less than three days. His guilt was seen as unquestionable until a young, black, Harvard-educated Yankee lawyer launched his own investigation into the murder. Thanks to Bryan Stevenson's unremitting efforts, six years after Walter McMillian was consigned to a cell on Alabama's death row, he walked out a free man. The state had been forced to acknowledge that investigators had used perjured testimony and withheld evidence from the defense that would have proved him innocent

The apocalypse stone by Pete Earley( Book )

"Judge not, lest ye be judged." These words have rarely if ever crossed the mind of Aberlene county judge Evan Spencer. From a middle class background, he graduated law school, married into wealth, and now has his eye on a Supreme Court seat. All seemed to be going well for Judge Spencer, until he received a package from an old college friend he hadn't heard from in years containing a cryptic note and a small stone. But in trying to track down his old friend, Spencer learns of the man's suicidal leap from the roof off a 20-story balcony. Evan Spencer now has control of an object whose power is beyond anything he could possibly imagine?an object whose very existence has been kept under wraps by the Vatican for decades. Spencer has been given the Apocalypse Stone: the actual stone Christ used when he stated "He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone." Throughout history this stone has been passed along, inflicting its possessor with stigmatic wounds and vivid visions of their sinful life. Enlisting the help of Reverend Angelo Grasso, a seventy-two year-old expert on the history of stigmatic cases, Spencer must uncover the secrets behind this strange stone, or watch his family, career, and possibly his life be destroyed."--Publisher's description
