First edition. Page edges just beginning to uniformly tan, else fine in dust jacket. Lord Carling is one of the great now...on all the right committees, sought after by television programs, but at one time he was just George Carling, a young idealist who wrote a letter to the Soviet embassy to say how much he admired the way they were resisting the Nazis. Later, he was a very good intelligence officer for the SIS with very accurate information about the Soviet Union and a cordial relationship with the Americans. Was Carling's information too good? Was he too close to Philby and the other legendary traitors of his era? SIS sends Tim Mathews to talk to him and see what he has to say about his past. Mathews is surprised when Carling talks frankly about how he found information, friendship, and love on the other side of the Berlin Wall, but his real secrets are deeper, and more shocking. He is the man who knows about Kim Philby's last great coup: the ultimate deception of the Cold War.
