    An intelligence officer has to be able to tell a good story, so it is hardly surprising that many authors and journalists have joined their ranks, while operatives such as John le Carre have become successful writers. This anthology, compiled by a former intelligence officer and journalist, assembles extracts from espionage fiction by the likes of Joseph Conrad, Graham Greene and Somerset Maugham, alongside instructions for spies and reports from Guy Burgess, Kim Philby and Sidney Reilly.
