“Intelligence breakthroughs often hinge upon a blend of innovative technology, remarkable people skills, painstaking analysis, intuitive judgement and robust integrity.

SPYSCAPE throws these ingredients into sharp relief, peeling away layers of fact and fiction, illuminating dazzling successes and intelligence failures, highlighting both the human and the technical qualities which course through this little understood profession, the balance between state and society, the ethical dilemmas at the heart of this vocation."
