THE NO.1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER An exciting Cold War story about a KGB double agent, by one of Britain's greatest historians and the ultimate gift for anyone who loves a good spy thriller! 'The best true spy story I have ever read' John le Carr ________________ On a warm July evening in 1985, a middle-aged man stood on the pavement of a busy avenue in the heart of Moscow, holding a plastic carrier bag. In his grey suit and tie, he looked like any other Soviet citizen. The bag alone was mildly conspicuous, printed with the red logo of Safeway, the British supermarket. The man was a spy. A senior KGB officer, for more than a decade he had supplied his British spymasters with a stream of priceless secrets from deep within the Soviet intelligence machine. No spy had done more to damage the KGB. The Safeway bag was a signal: to activate his escape plan to be smuggled out of Soviet Russia. So began one of the boldest and most extraordinary episodes in the history of spying. Ben Macintyre reveals a tale of espionage, betrayal and raw courage that changed the course of the Cold War forever . . . ________________ 'The world's most important spy since the Second World War. Mercilessly gripping' Sunday Times 'Extraordinary. His best book yet' John Preston, Evening Standard 'A remarkable story of one man's courage' The Times, Book of the Week Ben Macintyre, Sunday Times bestseller, August 2023

  2. Real Reality
    Kurt Halldin, 13 november 2020

    Toppklass journalism. Verkligheten mer spännande än fiktionen! Visar på ett chockerande sätt det nesliga kommunistiska systemets förtryckande av individen och basala mänskliga behov av ett anständigt liv.

  3. Superintressant
    halvardn, 13 oktober 2020

    Boken visar hur en spion måste tänka, analysera, agera och handla för att lyckas utan att avslöjas. Att vara dubbelagent ställer extra krav. Han/hon måste också ha ett tydligt mål utan att vara glupsk. Boken visar allt detta. Som spion måste man också vara beredd att offra ett normalt liv. Särskilt intressant var att författaren var med hos Skavlan den 9 oktober. Till skillnad från amerikanska böcker är språket lättförståeligt.

An incredible true life spy story...Every word ramps up the tension as you're drawn deeper into the danger * Mail on Sunday * If any spy writer were to put it in a novel, it would not be believed. But, blow by blow, trick by trick, it is all in Macintyre's book -- Fredrick Forsyth He writes like a novelist. One of the last chapters is as tense as any thriller. No wonder le Carr liked it * Daily Express *
