• The first Soviet master spy to defect on the eve of World War II was dead a year later. What is the truth behind the defection and death of Walter Krivitsky?

First published in 1939, this memoir sealed the fate of its author. After a dramatic flight from Europe, Walter G. Krivitsky reached the United States, but he was found shot dead in The Bellevue hotel in Washington, D.C. in 1940, with three suicide notes by his bed. But did he destroy himself, or was it a Soviet intelligence execution?

His death remains a mystery to this day but his story is very much alive.

About the Author
