An Impeccable Spy: Richard Sorge, Stalin’s Master Agent

This is the thrilling true story of Richard Sorge, the infamous Soviet intelligence operative that spy author John le Carré called “the spy to end spies.” He was a master manipulator and effortless seducer, who, hiding in plain sight as a foreign correspondent, infiltrated and influenced German, Chinese, and Japanese society in the years leading up to and including World War II. All to benefit the Soviet machine. Drawing on a wealth of newly unclassified documents, it is a riveting story of the man 007 creator Ian Fleming described as “the most formidable spy in history.”
