Pretty good for future history.

Of course, science has moved on. Venus is probably uninhabitable due to its enormously high temperature of 800 degrees at the surface! But Mars may be settled in the not too distant future, and the moon could also have settlements. And knowing the propensity of humans to get into quarrels, a space war is all too likely. Clarke's resolution was very hopeful however.

A brilliant science fiction spy work

I thoroughly enjoy this work. The story had me constantly guessing who the spy was. A definite read.
