NOTE: This book is not a standard genealogy or history book. It is best described as genealogical fiction. The immediate genealogy is accurate. The historical background is accurate. However, the story reads much like a very good, modern crime thriller. Charles P. Higdon is very open about which sections of the narrative are fictional, and why. His problem as an author was to write a biography about his uncle Charles, who started his government career as an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigations and ended his government career as an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency. Much of his uncle Charles’ career activities are still classified.
