A Spy Among Friends: Philby and the Great Betrayal - Ben Macintyre

I´m really in the mood for some non-fiction at the moment and I feel inspired to read this book, because I just recently visited the German Spy Museum in Berlin. 


This is my very first planned read for the 24 festive tasks. I will be using Helen MacInnes´ "Above Suspicion" as well, but a fitting book task hasn´t been announced just yet (hoping the Armistice Day makes an appearance again this year).


Anyhow, I will be using A Spy Among Friends for:


Book: Read a book set in the UK, a political thriller, a book involving any monarchy or revolution, a book about arson or related to fires and burning, a book whose plot involves costumes / fancy dress, or that has masks on the cover, or that is self-published.


It´s definitely set in the UK and I could argue that it is a polical thriller, even though it is a non-fiction read.
