Why if Alger Hiss was guilty of espionage, did he devote so much of his life to an extensive public campaign to persuade others he was not, a campaign that invited close scrutiny of his life and career? And how, without producing any new evidence supporting his innocence, was Hiss able to convince so many people that he was not a spy? This probing biography attempts to make sense of Hiss' life in light of the evidence of his complicity, providing the first reliable account of the highly placed spy who almost got away with it.
