A SPY NAMED ORPHAN The Enigma of Donald Maclean

by | Read by Jonathan Cowley

Biography & Memoir • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The story of the Cambridge spies of the 1940s and '50s is already well represented in audiobooks--in several incisive histories and biographies, and in two classic espionage novels, John le Carré's TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY, available narrated and dramatized, and John Banville's THE UNTOUCHABLE, wonderfully narrated by Bill Wallis. This new biography of Donald Maclean, the least colorful and, until now, less interesting spy in the group, brings new clarity, detail, and perspective to the larger story, qualities enhanced by Jonathan Cowley's effective narration. Cowley's voice embodies any number of familiar British qualities--steadiness, decorum, prudence, restraint, loyalty to one's own--the same qualities these privileged young men betrayed as they turned their faces east.
