Legends
by Robert Littell

A award-winning, psychological post-Cold War novel--adapted as a TNT series starring Sean Bean--Legends is the next blockbuster spy novel from Robert Littell. Martin Odum is a onetime CIA field agent turned private detective in Brooklyn, struggling his way through a labyrinth of memories and past identities--"legends" in Agency parlance. But who is Martin Odum? Is he a creation of the Legend Committee at the CIA's Langley headquarters? Is he suffering from multiple personality disorder, brainwashing, or simply exhaustion?
