    Note: The copy I have with me is the uncorrected version, which I have won through a raffle by Fully Booked called 20 Reads for 2020. I cannot cite the book as such, and will still have to refer to the officially published version. However, I believe that I somehow have the very skeleton of the book...

    This gripping true account of the attempt by the FBI to stop the theft of agricultural trade secrets by a group from China also deals with the related issue of racial profiling in U.S. crime enforcement....

  • PSexton
    It was a false promise. I thought I was going to read factual, unbiased information about the issues that the United States has in dealing with an example of Chinese espionage in its obvious attempt to steal rather than innovate. Instead the author presents an incredibly biased account of her views ...
