Perfect Spy: The Incredible Double Life of Pham Xuan

Why did one of the great spies of our century allow me to be his American biographer?

He was a trusted source for the era’s best known reporters; his circle extended well beyond journalism to include the CIA’s Lou Conein, Edward Lansdale and William Colby. He was friends with the most notable South Vietnamese politicians and generals. Working for Time provided the perfect listening post and information access point for a spy.
