Spy Among Friends


Kim Philby was the most notorious British defector and Soviet mole in history. Agent, double agent, traitor and enigma, he betrayed every secret of Allied operations to the Russians in the early years of the Cold War. Philby's two closest friends in the intelligence world, Nicholas Elliott of MI6 and James Jesus Angleton, the CIA intelligence chief, thought they knew Philby better than anyone, and then discovered they had not known him at all. This is a story of intimate duplicity; of loyalty, trust and treachery, class and conscience; of an ideological battle waged by men with cut-glass accents and well-made suits in the comfortable clubs and restaurants of London and Washington; of male friendships forged, and then systematically betrayed. With access to newly released MI5 files and previously unseen family papers, and with the cooperation of former officers of MI6 and the CIA, this definitive biography unlocks what is perhaps the last great secret of the Cold War.

Agent Sonya


The incredible story of the greatest female spy in history, from one of Britain's most acclaimed historians - available for pre-order nowIn a quiet English village in 1942, an elegant housewife emerged from her cottage to go on her usual bike ride. A devoted wife and mother-of-three, the woman known to her neighbours as Mrs Burton seemed to epitomise rural British domesticity.However, rather than pedalling towards the shops with her ration book, she was racing through the Oxfordshire countryside to gather scientific intelligence from one of the country's most brilliant nuclear physicists. Secrets that she would transmit to Soviet intelligence headquarters via the radio transmitter she was hiding in her outdoor privy.Far from a British housewife, 'Mrs Burton' - born Ursula Kuczynski, and codenamed 'Sonya' - was a German Jew, a dedicated communist, a colonel in Russia's Red Army, and a highly-trained spy.From planning an assassination attempt on Hitler in Switzerland, to spying on the Japanese in Manchuria, and helping the Soviet Union build the atom bomb, Sonya conducted some of the most dangerous espionage operations of the twentieth century. Her story has never been told - until now.Agent Sonya is the exhilarating account of one woman's life; a life that encompasses the rise and fall of communism itself, and altered the course of history.

Lacná kniha Dupla csavar (-50%)


A szövetséges haderők titkos szolgálatai -az MI6, az MI5, az FBI- és a francia ellenállás kettős ügynökökből felállították a Dupla Csavar elnevezésű kémhálózatot azzal a céllal, hogy a németeket hamis információkkal lássák el a partraszállás helyéről és idejéről. Tevékenységük eredményességét mutatja, hogy Hitler a kémjelentések alapján a szövetségesek nagy támadását a Calaisi-szorosban és Norvégiában várta június 7-én és 8-án, a szövetségesek pedig biztonságosan partra tudták tenni embereiket Normandiában június 6-án.A Duplacsavar-hálózat veszélyes és bonyolult játszmáját egy zseniális angol hírszerző, Tommy "Tar" Robertson irányította egy dohányfüstös londoni irodából a krikett játékszabályainak megfelelően. A főszereplő pedig öt excentrikus, öntörvényű, vakmerően bátor kettős ügynökvolt: Popov, szerb üzletember és aranyifjú, Czerniawski, lengyel pilótatiszt, Lily Sergeyev, a hisztérikus, labilis helyzetű úrinő, Pujol, a szenvedélyes spanyol és Elvira de la Fuente Chaudoir, a perui, biszexuális, kétes múltú asszony. Ez a könyv az ő történetük.
