The Spy Who Died Of Boredom. by  George. Mikes

The Spy Who Died Of Boredom.

by George. Mikes

First edition. Very good in price-clipped dust jacket with light wear to foot of spine. When the KGB come for Arkady Nikitin he thinks it's because he's been reading decadent western literature. However they are recruiting him for duty as a spy with an assignment in London. After two months of training he's sent to London as an industrial spy. While this is a funny spy story, it is considerably closer to the realities of life in the secret services of any great power than most fiction on the subject.
