Ben Macintyre, The Spy and the TraitorLeft Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books welcome bestselling author and journalist Ben Macintyre, who will sign and discuss his new book, The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War!

The celebrated author of Double Cross and Rogue Heroes returns with his greatest spy story yet, a thrilling tale of Oleg Gordievsky, the Russian whose secret work helped hasten the end of the Cold War. Unfolding the three-way gamesmanship between America, Britain, and the Soviet Union, and culminating in the gripping cinematic beat-by-beat of Gordievsky’s nail-biting escape from Moscow in 1985, Ben Macintyre’s latest may be his best yet. Like the greatest novels of John le Carré, it brings readers deep into a world of treachery and betrayal, where the lines bleed between the personal and the professional had the power to change the future of nations.

“The best true spy story I have ever read.” —John le Carré (A Legacy of Spies)
