Bestselling author Ben Macintyre tells the story of Kim Philby, the most notorious defector and Soviet mole in history. Philby betrayed every secret of allied operations during the early years of the Cold War, shocking and surprising his closest colleagues. Macintyre, with the help of newly released MI5 files, previously unseen family papers and help from former agents tells a story or duplicity, treachery, class and conscience. Publication of the book in March coincides with a major two-part documentary of the same name, presented by Macintyre.

Macintyre is a columnist and associate editor on The Times. He is author of nine previous books including Agent Zigzag, which was shortlisted for the Costa Biography Award, and the bestselling Operation Mincemeat and Double Cross.
