So this book is on its way to a charity shop so I thought I'd give it a glance through before it went - then read the lot.
I'm not overly interested in spy stories but there is no denying that true life is stranger than fiction and so it was compelling to read about those men (and woman) who put their lives at risk. Sadly it was usually for less than honourable reasons and nearly always ended in death and misery. Still I now know a little more about spies than I did this morning!

I love this book a LOT! It tells us about people who sacrifice their lives for many other people. Like spying in the World War one and two......
