Mousavi Majd, from the Quds Force to the gallows

One of the most brilliant double agent characters from modern literature is Severus Snape of the Harry Potter series. Author J.K. Rowling portrayed the perfect double agent. He remains in high risk and is often mistrusted. He’s lonely, and he’s devoted. He’s cunning, and he is complicated. But above all else, he gets the job done. Almost all brilliant double agents have these characteristics in common.
