|The KGB wheeled out Igor Batamirov, a retired senior officer (and Howard's case officer), to meet ghost writer Dick Cote and support Ed Howard's book|
Undercover with FBI Counterintelligence
"Howard has a 1700 square-foot apartment in the second nicest neighborhood in Moscow," whispered Richard Cote as we sat in Melio's. "He was able to buy it, but he doesn't live there. He uses it to overnight in town and put up business associates."
This was where The Dickster had lodged.
"His apartment is on the second floor," Cote continued. "This was convenient because the elevator was broken the whole time. Two bedrooms, one has twin beds. The other is fitted as a home-office with computer and laser printer."
I asked Cote if he thought he'd been watched.
"Who are his friends?"
"What makes Ed think the FBI would see your photos?"
