Summary (From the publisher):

The most secret spy of all

SORGE-the hard-drinking, brawling, wenching foreign correspondent, a disreputable ornament of Tokyo's night spots.

Only a few people knew that Sorge actually headed the most incredible spy ring of World War II. Using an ingenious assortment of agents from the boudoirs and back alleys of Tokyo, he filched the most extraordinary and vital intelligence from under the noses of the dreaded secret police, unsuspected by even his dearest friend, the German Ambassador.

Hans Hellmut Kirst's brilliant novel recreates the startling personality of this master spy-the terrors and tensions of his private war, and the disastrous, sordid love affair they drove him to
