The first chapter of this book about the life of Edith Tudor Hart opens on the Wiener Riesenrad, the giant Ferris wheel that dominates the Prater amusement park in Vienna. Inevitably it brings to mind a scene from the post-war film noir The Third Man. It is not an irrelevant thought, either, for that film’s screenplay was written by British novelist Graham Greene, whose boss at the British security agency MI6 had been Kim Philby. And the name of Philby, who was later exposed as a Soviet spy, crops up regularly in this book which recounts Edith Tudor-Hart’s life as an émigrée in Britain and as a Soviet spy herself.
