Vivian Miller is a dedicated CIA counterintelligence analyst assigned to uncover the leaders of Russian sleeper cells in the United States. On track for a much-needed promotion, she's developed a system for identifying Russian agents, seemingly normal people living in plain sight. After accessing the computer of a potential Russian operative, Vivian stumbles on a secret dossier of deep-cover agents within America's borders. A few clicks later, everything that matters to her--her job, her husband, even her four children--are threatened. Vivian has vowed to defend her country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. But now she's facing impossible choices. Torn between loyalty and betrayal, allegiance and treason, love and suspicion, who can she trust?

I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced thriller! Here is a link to my review:

I will be curious whether this book by a former CIA analyst is in any way relevant.
The best thing I have seen on Russian espionage in the last 20 years was an extensive recent article by the British investigative journalist, Heidi Blake, in Buzzfeed, titled:
From Russia With Blood - - truly fascinating!!!
Most interesting is that a similar series of murders took place in the 1980s with a similar MO, also in the London and UK area, but that time it involved scientists and engineers involved in contracted work on Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative [Star Wars program]. At that time, when those murders took place, Vladimir Putin was with the KGB, and today, when these newer murders are taking place, Putin is running Russia!
