From the back cover: "In Vietnam, Orrin DeForest waqs a legendary CIA man who put together an unmatched network of spies, counterspies, defectors, and informants to penetrate the inner workings and tactical patterns of the Vietcong. In this fascinating account, DeForest tells how he had to stand up to his CIA superiors and overcome failed and flawed strategies, and how his unusual methods led to more information than any other intelligence unit gathred during the war. From the action in the field to the art of interrogation, SLOW BURN chronicles DeForest's raging, covert war within a war. Most important, this riveting memoir exposes the shocking failure of the American intelligence establishment in Southeast Asia-and how U.S. forces and the Vietnamese people ultimately paid the price."
