From the cover: “The very size of the catastrophe that has happened in our counter espionage and security agencies really does not seem to have been matched before. This was George Brown speaking in Parliament in 1961, a week after Harry Houghton had been sentenced (along with the Krogers, Gordon Lonsdale and Ethel Gee) to fifteen years’ jail for his part in the notorious Portland Spy Ring. Now released from prison, Houghton can at last reveal the whole fantastic story of Operation Portland -the story that never came out at the trial.
