Soviet master spy Alexander Orlov (1895-1973), who defected to the U.S. in 1952 to denounce Stalin's crimes, was eulogized in the U.S. Senate for helping America fight the Cold War. But this book reveals through Orlov's KGB file that Orlov played a game of wits with the CIA and FBI, feeding them half-truths while concealing the identities of former colleagues and Soviet agents he had recruited. Using a trove of declassified Russian intelligence, the author establishes the true history of the Orlov defection and the agent's continuing deception in later years, including his masterminding of the notorious Cambridge spy ring and the recruitment of British moles such as Kim Philby, Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean. Boris Volodarsky, himself a former GRV officer, also takes the reader on a journey deep into the secrets of the KGB and piles one startling revelation over another, all the way to the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2006.
