The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War is the story of a KGB double agent named Oleg Gordievsky. He was the son of two KGB agents who took his own first posting for Russian intelligence in 1968. He would go on to become the top agent in London where he would become involved with MI6 and start working secretly for them from 1973 on. He worked with them for nearly a decade as he helped the West to expose Russian spies and foil intelligence plots. Britain tried to keep the identity of Oleg away from the Americans, but they became obsessed and assigned someone to find out who he was. That man was Aldrich Ames, the same man who would become infamous for secretly spying for the Soviets.

Macintyre is also the author of Agent Sonya: Moscow’s Most Daring Wartime Spy. The book follows a woman who seems to her neighbors to be a mother of three who is living a simple, unassuming life. Her neighbors couldn’t be more wrong though as she was a high-ranking Soviet intelligence officer.
