Season 22, Episode 5 From China with Love

First Aired: January 15, 2004

An atmospheric report on the 20-year love affair between an FBI agent and one of his "assets," a Chinese-born woman accused of being a Chinese double agent. The principals: Katrina Leung (code name: Parlor Maid) and agent J.J. Smith, who were arrested in April 2003. Leung was charged with copying classified documents; Smith with "gross negligence." Producer-director Michael Kirk tells this "story of secrets, risk, patriotism and, perhaps, love" largely through interviews with former FBI agents.
