From the capture of Sidney Reilly, the "Ace of Spies," by Leninís Bolsheviks in 1925 to the deportation from the United States of Anna Chapman, the "Redhead Under the Bed," in 2010, Kremlin and Western spymasters have battled for supremacy for nearly a century. Edward Lucas persuasively demonstrates that "for most of the past decades, the Kremlinís spymasters have run rings around their Western adversaries."

In Deception, Lucas uncovers the real story of Chapman and her colleagues in Britain and America, unveiling their clandestine missions and the spy hunt that led to their downfall. Some of Russiaís spies have had academic and professional qualifications that enhanced their contacts at the top of American politics and finance. Lucas reveals unknown triumphs and disasters of Western intelligence in the cold war, providing the background to the new world of industrial and political espionage. To tell the story of post-Soviet espionage, Lucas draws on exclusive interviews with Russiaís top NATO spy, Herman Simm, and unveils the horrific treatment of a Moscow lawyer who dared to challenge the ruling criminal syndicate there.

Once the threat from Moscow was international communism, now it comes from the siloviki, Russiaís ruthless "men of power." "The outcome," Lucas argues, "will determine whether the West brings Russia toward its standards of liberty, legality, and cooperation, or whether Russia will shape the Westís future as we accommodate (or even adopt) the authoritarian crony capitalism that is the Moscow regimeís hallmark."

Edward Lucas is a senior editor at the Economist. He has been covering Eastern Europe since 1986, with postings in Berlin, Moscow, Prague, Vienna, and the Baltic states. He is married to the columnist Cristina Odone. He is the author of The New Cold War, which has been published in more than fifteen languages.
