Jefferson Morley

Jefferson Morley's latest book, SCORPIONS' DANCE: The President, The Spymaster, and Watergate is an "eye opening investigation" (Publishers Weekly) about "the corrosive impact of intelligence covert action on individuals and on democracy itself." (Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, former CIA operations officer) "The lens is the relationship between President Nixon and Richard Helms, CIA Director through all but a few months of the Nixon presidency,' notes former U.S. Senator Gary Hart. "Morley has captured, in all its surreal conspiratorial glory, the last sinister tango of a pair of wicked Richards," says John Aloysius Farrell, author of Richard Nixon: The Life. "A riveting story that will make you chuckle and shiver." Morley's other books include: THE GHOST: The Secret Life of CIA Spymaster James Jesus Angleton ("The best book ever written about the strangest spy who ever lived”--Tim Weiner, best-selling author.) OUR MAN IN MEXICO: Winston Scott and the Hidden History of the CIA; (“A compelling page turner about a fascinating figure”—Jorge Casteneda, former foreign minister of Mexico.) SNOW-STORM IN AUGUST: Washington City, Francis Scott Key, and the Forgotten Riot of 1835 (“History so fresh it feels alive”—David Mariniss, best-selling author.)
