… The Ex­tra­or­di­nary Life of Guy Burgess. Fol­low­ing the re­lease of newly de­clas­si­fied doc­u­ments, Ge­orge Carey has as­sem­bled a char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally com­pelling Storyville ac­count of the life of the man at the cen­tre of the Cam­bridge spy ring of the 1930s, whose de­fec­tion in 1951 caused a body blow to Bri­tish in­tel­li­gence, largely as a re­sult of their own bungling in­com­pe­tence.
