Already a best seller in Italy and optioned for film, Supernotes is a novel based on the true story of Agent Kasper, one of the many aliases of a top-level undercover spy who worked for both the American CIA and the Italian intelligence services.
Agent Kasper is a man with a staggering résumé: a former police officer, a former airline pilot, a firearms expert, a highly accomplished practitioner of several of the martial arts, and a secret agent par excellence. In the end his competence is his undoing. While in Phnom Penh, Kasper is approached by the CIA to track down the source of the so-called "supernotes" that are flooding Southeast Asia - illegal US banknotes counterfeited so perfectly as to be undetectable, even by sophisticated machines.
With patience, skill, and courage, Kasper discovers the explosive secret: a money-printing operation in North Korea. Kasper tells his handlers what he's discovered, and a few days later a Cambodian associate calls him with a single urgent message: "Leave town now!" But before he can cross the Thai border, Kasper is arrested, apparently on CIA orders. As Kasper suffers through a brutal incarceration, he tries to figure out why the two governments he so heroically served chose to abandon him.
