This is another astonishing book from the accomplished biographer, Ben Macintyre, who, with access to newly released MI5 files and previously unseen family papers, and with the cooperation of former officers of MI6 and the CIA, unlocks what is perhaps the last great secret of the Cold War.
Kim Philby was the most notorious British defector and Soviet mole in history.
