Russians Among Us describes for the first time the story of deep-cover spies in America and the FBI agents who tracked them. Join Gordon Corera as he talks in riveting detail about Russia’s espionage attempts against the West from the end of the Cold War to the present and the significant threat of hacking the American 2020 election. Corera explains how spying has evolved, revealing new information about today’s spies, including details of the recruitment, running, and escape of one of the most important agents of modern times, a man who worked inside the heart of Russian intelligence – proving that sometimes the best spy stories actually happen in real life.
“Corera is to be congratulated for bringing to light, with humour and verve, a virtually unknown chapter of the war” – Daily Telegraph
