Description
For half a century the case of Isaiah Oggins, a 1920s New York intellectual brutally murdered on Stalin's orders in 1947, remained hidden in the secret file of the Soviet and American intelligence services. It surfaced briefly in 1992, when Boris Yeltsin handed over a dossier to the White House, but the full story of what happened remained a mystery. After eight years of international sleuthing, Andrew Meier here reveals in "a fascinating story brilliantly told" (Orlando Figes) that Oggins was one of the first Americans to spy for the Soviets.

"Not only a spy story worthy of John le Carré, but a grim reminder of the brutal reality of Stalin's secret world."—Telegraph
