A classic in the black literary tradition, The Spook Who Sat by the Door is both a comment on the civil rights problems in the United States in the late 1960s and a serious attempt to focus on the issue of black militancy.

Dan Freeman, the "spook who sat by the door," is enlisted in the CIA's elitist espionage program. Upon mastering agency tactics, however, he drops out to train young Chicago blacks as "Freedom Fighters" in this explosive, award-winning novel.

As a story of one man's reaction to ruling-class hypocrisy, the audiobook is autobiographical and personal. As a tale of a man's reaction to oppression, it is universal.

SAM GREENLEE was a writer and actor most known for his 1969 novel, The Spook Who Sat by the Door, which was produced into the 1973 film of the same name. He passed away in May 2014.
