“John Spinner”

Antagonist

“John Spinner,” is a fictional character, who represents all of the men who opposed Enders in his work as a spy. Spinner is a highly respected senior British Officer, who is a previously unknown member of the “Cambridge” group of four spies, headed by the notorious double agent “Kim” Philby — who was actually working for the USSR at the same time he was a senior officer in MI-5.  John Spinner was sent to the U.S. before the war as a British intelligence officer, and he cleverly wormed his way into the highest echelons of government.
