Double agent who gave up Chapman spy ring defects

From thaindian.com about the Anna Chapman iPhone app.
Double agent who gave up Chapman spy ring defects - Scotsman.com:
"The head of Russia's deep cover US spying operations has betrayed the network and defected, it was claimed yesterday.
If true, it would amount to one of the West's biggest intelligence coups since the end of the Cold War.

The newspaper, Kommersant, named the man as Colonel Shcherbakov, and said he was responsible for unmasking a Russian spy ring in the United States in June, involving London-based Anna Chapman, 28. Their arrests humiliated Moscow and strained diplomatic links.

The betrayal would make Shcherbakov one of the most senior traitors since the fall of the Soviet Union and could have consequences for Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) and its chief, former prime minister Mikhail Fradkov.

The newspaper said Shcherbakov - whose first name it did not give - had been responsible for 'illegal spying' in the US, meaning spies operating under deep cover without diplomatic immunity. 'There has never been such a failure by Section S, the American department that Shcherbakov directed,' said Gennady Gudkov, deputy chairman of the Russian parliament's security committee.

Shcherbakov had left Russia days before US authorities announced the spy-ring arrests on 28 June - and a Kremlin official was quoted as saying a Russian hit squad was probably already planning to kill him."
A USA radio report claimed that Colonel Shcherbakov's children live in the USA too.

This ties into the fan fiction Sarah and I wrote.  In Sarah's story, the couple is kidnapped by people working for Iranian and Russian agents.  In mine, the couple is getting over their ordeal and are not doing very well at it.  In an outline John has for another book, the couple may be contracted by the US government to take advantage of the conditioning they received in captivity.

For you kinksters out there, John has Suki II: Sunshine Returns available as a free read on BDSMlibrary.com (NOT work safe).  That one has some enslavement and spy elements too.  It happens well before the point Sarah and my stories begin.


Two fanfic stories in one book! Paperback or Nook.
