About The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War

The Spy and the Traitor tells the thrilling story of Oleg Gordievsky, a Russian whose secret work helped hasten the end of the Cold War. Gordievsky was considered a Russian counterpart to the infamous British double agent Kim Philby, and his actions were essential in helping to bring about the collapse of Soviet power. This page-turning account is equal parts biography, history, and espionage thriller - and it's impossible to put down.
