A popular account of the careers of British diplomats Guy Burgess and Douglas Maclean who defected to the USSR in 1951. A journalistic speculation of what the two defectors might have known and passed on to Soviet intelligence, the indiscretions that might have led to blackmail and recruiting by Soviet intelligence, and the possibilities of their being warned by another Soviet agent that they were under observation by British counterintelligence.
