A marvelously readable historical account of the Secret Service in Russia from Ivan the Terrible's dreaded Oprichniki right up to the KGB of today. Stories of famous spies, agent provocateurs and double agents abound - stories like that of the astonishing 'Lucy' network during WW2. Most fascinating of all is the insight into USSR's newest espionage tactic enabling their infiltration of the CIA.
