New York: Random House, 2009. First edition. Hardcover. Fine copy/fine. Pincher, Chapman: Treachery, Betrayals, Blunders, and Cover-ups: Six Decades of Espionage Against America and Great Britain. Random House. New York: 2009. First edition. 8vo. Two-tone boards. Pp. xiv, 684, (ii). Appendix. Note on the Sources. Archival Sources. Bibliography. Index.

The author says right at the beginning: "Throughout time, there has been general agreement that the foulest brand of treachery is the betrayal of a close, confiding, and protective friend." In this case the friends are the U.S. and Britain, although it could be argued that neither of them, at all times, were close, confiding or protective. But not to quibble, what happened on the English security side was very bad. This book is an extended indictment of Roger Hollis, head of MI5, whom he believes was a long-term Soviet agent.
