Stephen Holden, New York Times

Triva

• The ongoing search by the characters for the unknown third man in the spy ring is a take-off of the real-life years-long search for an unknown “Fifth Man” in the so-called Cambridge Five, a British spy ring which began operating during WWII.

• The cat Philby is named after Harold Adrian Russell Kim Philby, a member of the Cambridge Five who betrayed his native UK to spy for the USSR.
