For readers ofLegacy of Ashescomes an extraordinary and immensely readable account of six disastrous decades of Soviet espionagefrom noted intelligence authority Chapman Pincher This landmark book is a massive, meticulous, and utterly riveting account of the duplicity and incompetence that characterized twentieth-century Soviet espionage and the British response to it. Using a huge cache of recently released documents and exclusive interviews, Chapman Pincher makes a compelling new case thatas he has long believedthe head of Britains own MI5, Roger Hollis, was a double agent acting to undermine and imperil the United Kingdom and America.

Written with the power of a heart-pounding thriller,Treacheryis a warning about protecting our societies and institutions from enemy infiltration, and is bound to become a much-cited source now that Russia is dangerously flexing its militaryand espionagemuscles once again.
