In "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" (the book that introduced the term "mole" into common usage), a Philby-like character named Bill Haydon not only betrays Smiley's SIS but seduces his wife Ann as.

      Kim Philby, a spy novelist at the peak of his imaginative powers, would scarcely dare to invent the story contained in these extroardinary pages. That a son of the British establishment could, during a thirty year career in his country's secret service, at the same time be a dedicated Communist agent would seem too far-fetched even for fiction. By coincidence another book about Philby has appeared simultaneously, Kim Philby: the Unknown Story of the KGB’s Master Spy (Biteback, £20), written by another former friend and MI6 operative, Tim Milne, who died in Milne knew most of the players in the Philby story and his is a valuable, judicious insider’s account.
