I am not really a fan of political thrillers or suspense novels, especially espionage ones. I can name a few that i really like, but then, I do not look for books in this genre. But being an open-minded reader, I was intrigued with the plot of Trading Secrets. First thing that actually attracted me is the name of the author, Tadeusz Sas, which sounded so foreign and cool. Yes, call me shallow but author names in their native languages and with very unique and magical-sounding spellings in ...more

This is an interesting spy thriller that claims to be “based on actual events with names fictionalized except for those of major figures” such as Hugh Gaitskell, Nikita Khrushchev, etc. The pro-US Gaitskell was the preferred Labor leader until his untimely death (assassination by the KGB?) and Khrushchev was the beginning of the end of the Soviet phase of Authoritarian rule in Russia. It is not clear if the author intends to include, among those public figures, the Emir of Kuwait who is said in ...more

Book "Trading Secrets" written by Tadeusz R. Sas is one great espionage book based on events that actually took place. In prologue author explains that there are lot of fictionalized elements of the story and while reading one cannot distinguish reality from fiction. I must admit that I haven't read such good espionage book in years. The essence of this story can be summed up with following quote: "Being a double agent is not difficult. It's being a treble or quadruple agent that is hard. - KGB ...more

Trading Secrets is ‘based-on-real-life’ type novel written by Tadeusz R. Sas. Mr. Sas, was born in the United Kingdom in 1941 and participated in many of the events that are described in this book. Though exactly how much of this book is ‘based on Actual event’ is the question one has to get for himself, as it also has some fictional plot enhancements and characters.

Whom do you trust? Nobody. Whom do you use? Everybody, and this is the core value of this book.., that in the spy business when you

Being a secret agent has always seemed so thrilling and fun to me, and this story proves that it would be just as exciting. Trading Secrets is a very exciting spy thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat when you read it. You are dying to know what is going to happen next. This is a book that is allegedly based on true events, which makes it that much more exciting. It makes this book so much more thrilling knowing that these events could be partially real. You learn a lot about this ...more
