FOR YOUR EYES ONLY: THE SECRET MICROPHONE WRISTWATCH WORN BY COLD WAR SPIES
Worn and Wound
On the night of July 15, 1977, CIA agent Martha Peterson walked along Krasnoluzhskiy Bridge over the Moscow River. She had spent the last four hours on a surveillance detection run: walking, riding a bicycle, taking buses and taxis in circles–evading any KGB surveillance teams. Night fell. It was half past ten. She approached one of the bridge’s stone towers. She was focused and confident; in the past 18 months she had done this a dozen times, all without a hitch, and on this night she had no reason to think anything would go wrong.
