Customer Review

4.0 out of 5 stars In Spies we Trust, 25 Sept. 2013
This review is from: In Spies We Trust: The Story of Western Intelligence (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I enjoyed this book as ever since Spycatcher by Peter Wright in the late 1980's I have been interested in the subject of spies and spying. If you have a fascination for the world of George Smiley, this would be an excellent companion to that genre, or if you are interested in the in-depth history of western intelligence you will find a lot to interest you. This book is published by the Oxford University Press, so it is a well-researched scholarly work. It is not a light gossipy page turner, however Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones writes with a lightness of touch that stops you getting bogged down in facts, and the book is not too dry and scholarly for the general reader. I don't remember all the names and dates mentioned in this book, but there were enough good stories and anecdotes to keep me interested.
