Particularly interesting is the ease with which he moved from one British security agency to another despite suspicions and a personal life that strains the imagination.
This is a good read to get a better perspective on the whole story and an entertaining picture of a real character. Well written. Appears to be meticulous and comprehensive research.
And at the same time, he occasionally draws some unsupported conclusions, such as 'Such inside information only reinforced Stalin’s suspicion that the British and French governments were not seriously interested in a treaty and Russian interests might best be served by a pact with Germany.' Really? Burgess was a low-to-mid-level spy at this point, mostly reporting secondhand gossip. No one knows what Stalin thought, ever. It's a key point, and an important error; I suspect it's not alone, but I didn't wait to find out.
