"Totally gripping . . . a masterpiece. Tate lifts the lid on one of the most important and complex spies of the Cold War, who passed secrets to the West and finally unmasked traitor George Blake."
--Helen Fry, author of MI9: A History of the Secret Service for Escape and Evasion in World War Two

"A wonderful and at times mind-boggling account of a bizarre and almost forgotten spy--right up to the time when he's living undercover in Queens, New York and claiming to be the last of the Romanoffs."
--Simon Kuper, author of The Happy Traitor

"A highly readable and thoroughly researched account of one of the Cold War's most intriguing and tragic spy stories."
--Owen Matthews, author of An Impeccable Spy

Gripping . . . . Fascinating dirty linen from the early decades of the CIA. --Kirkus Reviews
