Agent Sonya, by Ben Macintyre

Staff Pick

Ben Macintyre, further burnishing his reputation as John le Carré’s nonfiction counterpart, recounts the story of another real-life, accomplished spy. This time his subject is Ursula Kuczynski—codename Sonya—who, over the course of a 20th-century career working for Moscow that took her from Germany to China, Poland, Switzerland, and eventually Britain, managed to elude German, British, and American authorities. Before coming in from the cold, she lived in a quiet village in the English Cotswolds with three children and a husband. Behind the facade of her picturesque life, she worked with nuclear physicist Klaus Fuchs, transmitting scientific secrets that enabled the Soviets to develop nuclear bombs
