Reviews

His analysis is shrewd, his judgement sound...(the book's) strength is to present stories of the secret service's successes and failures within the political and strategic context of the times. - THE SUNDAY TIMES - Adam SismanTHE ART OF BETRAYAL tells the history of MI6 in the words of real spies. - THE MAIL ON SUNDAYA refreshing...(and) compelling read. - THE DAILY EXPRESS - Christopher SilvesterCorera, the BBC's security correspondent, has enjoyed privileged access to key spy players from the past few decades and, writing in an engaging style, he picks up the story of the MI6 at the point where the "official" history grinds to a halt after the Second World War. - THE SUNDAY EXPRESS - Annie MachonAs a good journalist and a reader of spy novels, Corera presents his material as fast-paced stories, from the covert diplomacy of the Cold War to recent and current security concerns in Afghanistan and the Middle East, and he humanises the grand dramas of a duplicitous trade. - THE TIMES - Iain FinlaysonHighly readable and well-researched account of the Service...Let's hope the current generation of spooks has learnt from past mistakes. - THE DAILY TELEGRAPH - Con CoughlinCorera provides a unique insight into how British intelligence has changed since the Second World War and how our spymasters reacted to major crises such as the September 11 attacks and the Iraq war. A fascinating read. - THE PEOPLESuperb new history of British intelligence - THE EVENING STANDARD
