Categories: Historical, Literature & Poetry


Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books welcome bestselling author and journalist Ben Macintyre, who will sign and discuss his new book, “The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War”!

This event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required. Please RSVP at Proof of purchase of “The Spy and the Traitor” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

The celebrated author of “Double Cross” and “Rogue Heroes” returns with his greatest spy story yet, a thrilling tale of Oleg Gordievsky, the Russian whose secret work helped hasten the end of the Cold War. Unfolding the three-way gamesmanship between America, Britain, and the Soviet Union, and culminating in the gripping cinematic beat-by-beat of Gordievsky’s nail-biting escape from Moscow in 1985, Ben Macintyre’s latest may be his best yet.
