A Spy Among Friends by Ben MacIntyre (hardcover) - $3 (coquitlam)

condition: like new

A Spy Among Friends - Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal by Ben MacIntyre (hardcover)

When devouring this thriller about Kim Philby, the high-level British spymaster who turned out to be a Russian mole, I had to keep reminding myself that it was not a novel.

It reads like a story by Graham Greene, Ian Fleming or John le Carré, all of whom make appearances, leavened by a dollop of P. G. Wodehouse. But, in fact, “A Spy Among Friends” is a solidly researched true story. The London journalist Ben Mac-intyre, who has written nine previous histories chronicling intrigue and skulduggery, takes a fresh look at the grandest espionage drama of our era.
