Most Secret Agent of Empire

Reginald Teague-Jones, Master Spy of the Great Game

Taline ter Minassian

  • Compelling biography of Reginald Teague-Jones (1889- 1988) --the most important British spy you have never heard of
  • Teague-Jones was feared by Stalin, roamed Eurasia and chameleon-like, vanished, only to reappear in America, decades later, still practicing espionage
  • · Teague-Jones was held responsible for the execution of 'the 26 Commissars' after the fall of the Baku Commune in 1918--an event that inspired a poem by Yesenin, a Brodsky painting and a 1933 feature film
