I had to read this book twice, just to get a handle on the extent of the perfidy throughout the career of this man, Roger Hollis, who became head of MI5.
What is most impressive about the preparation of this book is the massive amount of research, over three generations, and as many continents, that Chapman Pincher has gathered.
In the most tenacious pursuit of the truth regarding the actions or, more correctly, inactions, of Hollis throughout his career as MI5's so-called expert in both Soviet counterespionage, and security of the UK's evolving atomic industry, Pincher has presented one of the most mind-bogglingly staggering examples of investigative journalism I have ever read.
