A Spy Among Friends (Hardback)
Along with his 'friends' Nicholas Elliott and James Jesus Angleton, Kim Philby was one of the rising stars in the intelligence world during the early years of the Cold War. The three spies drank in the same bars, wore the same suits and spoke with the same accents, but Philby had one secret he never revealed to MI6 agent Elliott and CIA agent Angleton - he was covertly working for Moscow. An agent, double agent, traitor and enigma, Ben Macintyre's A Spy Among Friends looks at how Philby managed to hide his true identity for so long. It's a gripping tale of duplicity, loyalty, trust and treachery, made all the more startling as it is true. Macintyre draws on detailed research and newly released MI5 files, along with family papers, to deliver the definitive biography of what may well be the great secret of the Cold War. The book also comes with an afterword from John Le Carre.
