This book tells the story of a 1945 Soviet defection, which revealed a network of spies working in Canada with the mission of obtaining American and British military secrets, including information on the atomic bomb. The author describes the events behind the defection and the information contained within the documents that the defector brought with him. He also details the motives, arrests, and stories of the Soviet spies involved in the network. The book ends by noting the existence of parallel spy rings in Canada and contemplates future security from Soviet espionage. Some of the information in the book is dated, as additional information about Soviet spies became publicly available after the publication of the book in 1947.
