After years behind the Iron Curtain, Britain’s most notorious traitor wants to return to the homeland he betrayed as part of the Cambridge Five spy ring.
John Powell is assigned the task of finding out why. Is it an old man’s whim, or a carefully planned KGB operation?
To find out Powell must journey into the labyrinth of a man’s legendary past, sifting through every rumour, every plot, every shadowy alliance, until the journey leads him into the most dangerous recess of them all, the heart and mind and motivation of the man himself – Kim Philby.
THE OTHER SIDE OF SILENCE is a classic espionage thriller from one of the true masters of the genre.
