A Spy Among Friends : Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal

A Spy Among Friends : Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal

By Ben Macintyre

“ From MI5 and the CIA-a good account of politics before friendship. ”

Mix one part old boy network with generous slugs of pink gin and mix with jokes and cricket results and stir into a capacious glass of ruthless deception and you get Kim Philby duping his two best mates from MI5 and the CIA-a good account of politics before friendship. Anyone else for 'spy' drinks?
