'When I say Ted Allbeury Knows where the bodies are buried I mean it literally' - Len Deighton
Andrei Aarons is just twenty when he becomes a spy. Quiet, idealistic, a true believer, always able to justify the imperfections of the Russian Revolution.
Picked, trained and given an assignment in New York, he begins his extraordinary life as the most successful espionage agent the Soviets ever had.
So why did six American presidents trust him
This novel, based on highly confidential information, is the story of the ultimate failure of communism seen through the eyes of one of the most secret participants in its seventy-four history, a man once described by the Pentagon as 'the man who won the Cold War'.
