It sounds like a Hollywood thriller: Noel Field was a Harvard graduate and rising star in the State Department in the 1930s. He was also a Russian spy. In her new book, "True Believer: Stalin's Last American Spy," journalist Kati Marton examines how Moscow seduced and later betrayed the idealistic young Field. With tensions over Russia's hacking of the U.S. election heating up, Marton joins us to talk about Field's dramatic story.

Guests:

Kati Marton, author, "True Believer: Stalin's Last American Spy"; her other books include "The Great Escape" and "Paris: A Love Story"
