ABOUT THE BOOK
2017 New York Book Festival Honorable Mention
A spy who has been uncovered can no longer continue to be a spy. The nature of spying is such that a spy, in order to be successful, must remain an unknown entity. The uncovering of a spy usually occurs when he has been captured and his captors reveal his identity, but some spies, albeit very few, reveal their own identities after they have retired.
In this book, eight uncovered spies — Sidney Reilly, Richard Sorge, Julius & Ethel Rosenberg, Klaus Fuchs, Rudolf Abel, Kim Philby, Aldrich Ames, and Robert Hanssen — have been pro led. Each has his own unique story, but because they have been uncovered, and because of the omnipresent deception and misinformation in the eld, they should not be perceived as being representative of spies in general.
