336 pages; Doubleday

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Russian affairs expert zooms in on the true saga of a Soviet engineer—the spy of the title—who passed the CIA billions of dollars' worth of top secret intel right under the nose of the KGB, passing off notes into waiting cars and employing other Bond-worthy tactics to help the U.S. win the Cold War.
