Englishman Harold Adrian Russell Philby, nicknamed Kim, slips onto the Russian freighter Domatova as it quietly sails out of the Beirut harbour. A spy for the Soviet Union, he flees the Lebanese capital with just the clothes on his back and uncertainty over his fate in Moscow. Will he be welcomed as a senior Soviet intelligence officer? Will the Great Game he's so keen on playing have a third act? Or will Moscow's Heart of Darkness have a more sinister purpose?
Impossible to put down, Young Philby paints a vivid picture about one of recent history's most fascinating and subtle spies, and the enigma of his treachery that kept his friends, lovers and the world's superpowers guessing to the end.
