Born in Lesmahagow, the son of an an ironmonger and a primary school teacher, John Cairncross was among the most damaging spies of the twentieth century. A member of the infamous Cambridge Ring of Five, he leaked highly sensitive documents from Bletchley Park, MI6 and the Treasury to the Soviet Union. While the other members of the Cambridge Ring of Five have been the subject of extensive biographical study, Cairncross has largely been overlooked by both academic and popular writers. Based on newly released material, The Last Cambridge Spy is the first ever biography of John Cairncross.
