Product description

Review

An abundance of vivid detail from many different voices, viewpoints and nationalities...Stalin's Englishman is a matchless and splendidly exciting read. (The Times)

This exhaustively researched and absorbing book, the first full biographical study and likely to remain the definitive life. (New Statesman)

A meticulously researched biography...an astonishing piece of research. (Sunday Times)

Complicated, revelatory: a superb biography more riveting than a spy novel. (Sunday Telegraph)

As one of this country's foremost literary agents, Andrew Lownie certainly knows what makes a good book, and in Stalin's Englishman he has delivered one of his own - many times over. (Independent)

Not every question has been answered, but most have, and those that remain probably never will be. (Independent on Sunday)

In this meticulous biography of the most colourful of the quintet, espionage expert Lownie argues convincingly that Burgess - often seen as a clownish buffoon - was the key member of the ring, and his treachery the most damaging. (Observer)

A magnificent biography...Burgess has all the right ingredients for an engrossing story and Lownie, who has spent 30 years researching this biography, makes the most of it... a narrative as gripping as a thriller. (Daily Express)

Scrupulous and comprehensive. (The Week)

Is there anything significant left to say about members of the Cambridge spy ring, Moscow's 'magnificent five'? The answer, judging by this book, is a resounding yes. (Guardian)

Book Description

The extraordinary true story of Guy Burgess, the man at the heart of the Cambridge Spy Ring and a linchpin of Cold War espionage.
