Eschewing the confines of traditional biography and inverting the glamour of espionage, acclaimed biographer Millicent Dillon blends fact and fiction to chronicle the human drama of Harry Gold, the American chemist who became a Soviet spy.

In casting Gold''s story as a novel, Dillon creates a gripping narrative from the true events of political life in America from the thirties through the McCarthy era, from Gold''s recruitment to his training in tradecraft to his role in Julius Rosenberg''s and Klaus Fuchs''s atomic espionage at Los Alamos. The result is a novel with the psychological depth of Graham Greene''s The Third Man, the taut pacing of All the President'' s Men, and the moral poignancy of Phillip Roth''s I Married A Communist.
Millicent Dillon is an American writer. She was born in New York City and studied physics at Hunter College. She also worked variously at Princeton University, Standard Oil Company and Northrup Aircraft.
