Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal
"Kim Philby was the greatest spy in history, a brilliant and charming man who rose to head Britain's counterintelligence against the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War--while he was secretly working for the enemy. Nobody thought he knew Philby like Nicholas Elliott, Philby's best friend and fellow officer in MI6, but Philby was secretly betraying his friend: every word Elliott breathed to Philby was transmitted back to Moscow, sinking almost every important Anglo-American spy operation for twenty years and costing hundreds of lives. Even as the web of suspicion closed around Philby, his friend Elliott never abandoned him--until it was too late. Told with heart-pounding suspense and keen psychological insight, A Spy Among Friends is a fascinating portrait of a Cold War spy and the countrymen who remained willfully blind to his treachery."--Provided by publisher.
