A Spy Named Orphan

Treachery. I’ve been interested in British spies since I first heard of Kim Philby when I was a teenager. In a new book titled, A Spy Named Orphan, Roland Phillips tells the story of another one of the infamous Cambridge Five, Donald Maclean. This comprehensive book covers the full range of Maclean’s life and his treachery. Phillips tells this story with gusto: lots of information in a readable and exciting narrative. Any reader who enjoys history or espionage will find a lot to enjoy from this finely written book. For some readers, Russian spies are not relegated to the past, and there may be readers who are concerned with contemporary issues and can find insight in this book.
