"Often reading like a John Le Carre novel, this work traces the steps of Russian deep undercover agents and the efforts of the FBI to uncover them... A thrilling, fast-paced look at Russia's ongoing operations... This exciting read will be enjoyed by fans of real life and fictional spy stories."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Corera tells this astonishing tale with deft authority, placing it in the wider context of Russian intelligence strategy. No one is better versed in the intricacies of the continuing spy war between East and West."--Ben Macintyire, The Times (UK)
"An eye-opening look at the "illegals" and other agents who have been spying for Russia, Soviet and otherwise, over the last several decades... Corera tells a big story in a relatively short space... A book that helps make sense of recent headlines and old news alike."--Kirkus Reviews
"A wide-ranging, thought-provoking, and highly readable history of Britain's postwar Secret Intelligence Service, popularly known as MI6."--The Wall Street Journal on The Art of Betrayal
"No Frederick Forsyth thriller could be as gripping as this real-life story."--Daily Mail (UK) on Operation Columba
"The best post-1949 account of British intelligence I have ever read. This is as good as it gets."-- The Spectator (UK) on The Art of Betrayal
"[An] amazing story of the secret pigeon service and how it helped to win the war. Well-researched and well-told, as much about humans as pigeons, it is replete with eccentric Englishmen, ruthless Nazis, and brave resisters in occupied Europe who risk their lives for the Allied cause."--Nicholas Reynolds, author of Writer, Sailor, Soldier, Spy on Operation Columba
"[An] extraordinary, colourful and moving story... [A] thrilling tale."--Sunday Times (London) on Operation Columba
"Corera is to be congratulated for bringing to light, with humour and verve, a virtually unknown chapter of the war."--Daily Telegraph (London) on Operation Columba
