'With this marvellous, meticulously researched and truly ground-breaking account of British spies working in Lenin's stripling Soviet Union, Giles Milton - with his best book so far - reminds us of a time when the spying game was dangerous, fun and even, dare one say it cool.' Simon Winchester, author of The Surgeon of Crowthorne (UK), The Professor and the Madman (USA)
