About this title


Newly discovered British and American reports, scores of interviews, and expert analysis substantiate an account of the espionage network created by Anthony Blunt and of that network's infiltration of British and American institutions

From Library Journal:

The amazing exploits of the Soviet "Cambridge spy ring" have been extensively written about since Anthony Blunt, the queen's art advisor, was unmasked in 1979. British historian Costello provides a fascinating, massively researched portrait of the Soviet moles. His conclusions must be viewed cautiously, however, since most British secrets are still classified and since "a wilderness of mirrors" confronts anyone attempting to undo these labyrinths. More sweeping in his conclusions than Peter Wright's Spycatcher (Viking, 1987; see The Spycatcher Affair, below), Costello sees Blunt as the "first man" in the Cambridge ring, and the highly placed Guy Laddelle as the Soviet's "grandfather mole." Heavy going for the general reader, but sure to be much discussed. Recommended. Gregor A. Preston, Univ. of California Lib., Davis
