About Young Philby:

An elegant, twisty spy story by a true master of the craft


Bestselling novelist Robert Littell employs all his considerable skills in telling the story of Kim Philby through the eyes of more than twenty true-life characters. As each layer is revealed, the question arises: Who really was this man?

When Kim Philby fled to Moscow in 1963, he became the most infamous double agent in history. A member of Britain’s intelligence service since World War II, he had risen to become their chief officer in Washington, D.C. after the war. The exposure of other members of the group of double agents known as the Cambridge Five led to the revelation that he had been working for Russia for even longer than he had been part of MI6. Yet he escaped, and spent the last twenty-five years of his life in Moscow.

In Young Philby, Robert Littell tells the story of the spy’s early years. In the words of his friends, lovers, and Soviet handlers we see the development of a fascinating, flawed man who kept people guessing about his ideals and allegiances until the very end.

ROBERT LITTELL is the author of sixteen previous novels and the nonfiction book If Israel Lost the War, written with Shimon Peres, President of Israel. He has been awarded both the Gold Dagger and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for his fiction. His novel The Company was a New York Times bestseller and was adapted into a television miniseries. He lives in France.

John Lee has read more than 100 audiobooks. His work has garnered multiple Earphones Awards and won AudioFile’s Best Voice in Fiction & Classics in both 2008 and 2009. Lee narrated the audiobook for A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin, volume four of A Song of Ice and Fire. He has also read for Jack London, John Banville, Charles Dickens, and Barbara Taylor Bradford.

“John Lee makes this novel based on the true story of one of the twentieth century’s most notorious spies, “Kim” Philby, as riveting an account as a listener could wish for…Lee’s performance brings credible insights into the early techniques of spycraft during WWII and the Cold War as well as offering fascinating character portraits of some of those who influenced the young agent.” —AudioFile Magazine

“John Lee gives each character an authentic accent, German, Russian, upper-crust Brit, even Philby’s ever-present stutter, as he skillfully moves the narration along.” —BookPage
