A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal
Code: 120633


Product Facts:
Kim Philby was the greatest spy in history, a brilliant and charming man who rose to head BritainÕs counterintelligence against the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold WarÑwhile he was secretly working for the enemy. And nobody thought he knew Philby like Nicholas Elliott, PhilbyÕs best friend and fellow officer in MI6. But Philby was secretly betraying his friend. Every word Elliott breathed to Philby was transmitted back to MoscowÑand not just ElliottÕs words, for in America, Philby had made another powerful friend: James Jesus Angleton, the crafty, paranoid head of CIA counterintelligence.

Told with heart-pounding suspense and keen psychological insight, and based on personal papers and never-before-seen British intelligence files, A Spy Among Friends is Ben MacintyreÕs best book yet, a high-water mark in Cold War history telling.
