Edith and Kim is a novel based on the true story of the woman behind the Cambridge spies in Cold War espionage.

In June 1934, Kim Philby met his Soviet handler, the spy Arnold Deutsch. The woman who introduced them was called Edith Tudor-Hart. She changed the course of 20th-century history, then she was written out of it. Drawing on the secret intelligence files on Edith, along with the private archive letters of Kim Philby, this novel – by Kim’s granddaughter – tells the story of the woman behind the Third Man.

‘Completely fascinating. A sophisticated and brilliantly constructed fictional retelling of a crucial relationship in 20th century espionage history. A tremendous achievement’ William Boyd

‘Atmospheric and rigorously researched’ Sunday Times
