Pro: Really good coverage about Ms. Park's contribution to the fight and her achievements. Though at first seemed Gordy was simply towing the liberal BBC line. However, he qualifies her well as one of the greats based on facts and original research.
Cons: Gets Penkovsky affair false while miscalculating why the man betrayed his country. Rather than vanity, it was betrayal of him by USSR that led to his ultimate deception. His service to his country and connections were nullified because his father - whom he never knew - fought and died while serving in the White Army.
Simply put, Corera's lack of understanding regards to human aspect of spying really shows.
Perhaps his next book should be about India's love affair with the USSR and now Russia, as both countries are actively targeting U.K. and US via Cyber space. With his cultural connection, he could use his home base in Goa for research and probably deliver a fascinating look behind this amazing yet murky relationship.
