About: In March 1972 Leslie James Bennett, for almost two decades head of the RCMP's counterintelligence war against the Russians, was taken quietly to a safehouse in Ottawa and interrogated for five days on suspicion of being a KGB mole.

Was he a loyal spy-catcher or a spy himself?

John Sawatsky, who first exposed Canada's role in the gray world of espionage with his bestselling Men In The Shadows, now reveals the top-secret story of what happened on the Russian Desk while Bennett was in charge. While the facts are humiliating - the KGB consistently outwitted the Security Service's counterespionage cases - the conclusions are still debated passionately by insiders.
