Newly declassified MI5 files reveal the story of the female spy, Ursula Kuczynski, a Jewish German refugee who stole Britain’s atomic secrets and gave them to the Soviets.

Operating under the noses of MI5, she outsmarted Britain’s star interrogator of the day, evaded capture and even managed to escape Stalin’s great purge.
