The Beria Papers - Alan Williams

Blond & Briggs, 1973, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Unlaminated DJ a little edgeworn and faded with some tiny chips. Edges of the textblock lightly spotted.

3rd Printing. From the cover: “The secret diaries of Beria (Stalin’s police chief) are the most shattering — if lurid — indictment of Russian political methods and a new account of what really happened at Stalin’s death. They confirm Beria as one of the ogres of our time, both in his private life and in his political manipulations of the Soviet leaders, some of whom are in power today. The two most powerful Secret Services in the world — the KGB and the CIA — are ordered to track down the origin of the book and to get to the bottom of the mystery. Their investigations range from New York to Washington, to London, Moscow, Munich, Budapest, Vienna and finally a small island in the Indian Ocean where the activities of the two secret agencies clash horribly. Can The Beria Papers possibly be a hoax?”
