February Staff Pick

As exciting as a le Carre thriller, this is a true story of the Cold War. KGB officer Oleg Gordievsky grew disenchanted with the Soviet way of life and became a spy for the British government in the 1970s. With access to top level information and the ability to explain the thinking of the Soviet government, Gordievsky was an invaluable asset. He was also in constant danger of discovery. Brush contacts and dead drops, Safeway bags & Mars Bars all play a part in the complicated escape plan devised by MI6 to get Gordievsky out of the Soviet Union before it's too late.
