Summary

The Introduction begins with a set of KBG agents bugging an apartment in Moscow. The apartment belonged to a KBG agent. Cameras and microphones were placed to cover every square foot to make sure there were no dead spots. Meanwhile, at the Moscow airport, a senior Russian intelligence officer landed from a flight from London. Oleg Gordievsky, a KGB Colonel, had just been promoted to chief of the KGB station in London. A spy by trade, Gordievsky was trained by the Soviet Union, but for the past 12 years had been acting as a double agent for M16, Britain's foreign intelligence service.
