About the Author

David E. Hoffman is a contributing editor at The Washington Post and a correspondent for PBS's flagship investigative series, Frontline. He is the author of The Dead Hand (Icon, 2011), about the end of the Cold War arms race, and winner of a Pulitzer Prize. He lives with his wife in Maryland.


It is the human factor that elevates The Billion Dollar Spy to a different level: non-fiction as rich and resonant as a spy novel by John Le Carre or Graham Greene. * Mail on Sunday *

The Pulitzer prizewinning American journalist David E Hoffman has had access to CIA files and the result is an astonishingly detailed picture of espionage in the 1980s, written with pacey journalistic verve and an eerily contemporary feel ... Essential reading for anyone who wants to know how the spy mind works.

-- Ben Macintyre * The Times *

A fabulous read that also provides chilling insights into the Cold War spy game between Washington and Moscow that has erupted anew under Vladimir Putin.

* Michael Dobbs, author of One Minute to Midnight: Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro on the Brink of Nuclear War *

A gripping story of courage, professionalism, and betrayal in the secret world.

* Rodric Braithwaite, British Ambassador in Moscow, 1988-1992 *
