Praise

“Far more gripping than any novel of espionage I can remember.” —Graham Greene

“To this day I am convinced that he was not an ideologue. Spying was just his way of being above lesser mortals.” —Nigel West

“Addictive . . . highly polished . . . written with style and a feline sense of irony, making it a much better read than any of the other Philby literature.” —The Guardian

“Philby has no home, no women, no faith. Behind the inbred upper-class arrogance, the taste for adventure, lies the self-hate of a vain misfit for whom nothing will ever be worthy of his loyalty. In the last instance, Philby is driven by the incurable drug of deceit itself.” —John le Carré
