Top ten books about spies

Stephen Grey's new book is The New Spymasters: Inside the Modern World of Espionage from the Cold War to Global Terror. One of his top ten books about spies, as shared at the Guardian:
Agent Storm: My Life Inside al-Qaeda and the CIA by Morten Storm (2014)

Probably the best account of a modern-day secret agent. Morten Storm, a convert to Islam, vividly recounts his work for the CIA and British intelligence, against extremists in Europe and al-Qaeda in the Yemen. Recruits like Storm are clearly hard to handle, but they may also have the sheer courage needed to operate unsupported deep inside enemy territory.
Read about the other books on the list.
