The most publicized assassination case in Cold War history The most publicized assassination case in Cold War history
In the fall of 1961, a KGB assassin defected to West Germany. Bogdan Stashinsky had already travelled on numerous occasions to Munich, where he had singlehandedly tracked down and killed the enemies of the communist regime. His weapon was a specially designed secret: it killed without leaving any trace...Stashinsky crossed into West Berlin just hours before the Berlin Wall was erected and spilled his secrets to the CIA. He told a gripping story of espionage, complete with exploding parcels, elaborately staged cover-ups, double crossings and daring midnight escapes, a story which would change laws and inspire Ian Fleming's final novel. After his trial, incredibly, he escaped, had plastic surgery and disappeared. He may still be alive today...
