    The number one Sunday Times best seller

    Shortlisted for the 2018 Baillie Gifford Prize

    A thrilling Cold War story about a KGB double agent, by one of Britain's greatest historians - now with a new afterword.

    On a warm July evening in 1985, a middle-aged man stood on the pavement of a busy avenue in the heart of Moscow, holding a plastic carrier bag. In his grey suit and tie, he looked like any other Soviet citizen. The bag alone was mildly conspicuous, printed with the red logo of Safeway, the British supermarket.

    The man was a spy. A senior KGB officer, for more than a decade he had supplied his British spymasters with a stream of priceless secrets from deep within the Soviet intelligence machine. No spy had done more to damage the KGB. The Safeway bag was a signal: to activate his escape plan to be smuggled out of Soviet Russia. So began one of the boldest and most extraordinary episodes in the history of spying. Ben Macintyre reveals a tale of espionage, betrayal and raw courage that changed the course of the Cold War forever....

    Really brilliant

    Great production with thorough historical research and Insider knowledge. Respectable and admirable author, who also performed his book convincingly. A good choice and very much worth it.

    Sounds like fiction but it's not

    Macintyre's brilliant narration makes this an unputdownable work of non-fiction. But set yourself up for a re-read.

    A gripping tale brilliantly told

    MacIntyre's masterpiece... even though Oleg's story is incredible by itself the author had managed to finesse it in such a way the reader cannot put it down

    Absolutely enthralling

    I have listened to a handful of books from Audible and I have enjoyed most of them. But I tried The Spy and the Traitor based on a recommendation based on my interests and I am glad I did. This is by far the most fascinating book I have tried on Audible. The narrator has a silky smooth voice and is a great story teller without being too animated. But the book itself is really fascinating. I have an hour long commute both to and from work, and normally my routine was to listen to podcasts on the way to work and catch up on the news and listen to an audiobook on the way home. This book disrupted the routine, I listened on both the way to work and on the way home, I also found more time to jog in the local park because I wanted to continue the story. This book is absolutely terrific. The characters come alive are sympathetic and/or apathetic, the intrigue is nail-biting and the pacing is perfect. I will definitely be checking out more of Ben Macintyre, this is definitely one I will not soon forget!
