Belle Boyd was only a teenager when she croosed a Civil War battlefield to carry a message through enemy lines, Captian Thomas Edward Lawrence, an Englishman dressed as an Arab, was able to move among Turkish soldiers, speaking their language and learning their secrets. Fritz Kolbe pretended to be a good Nazi while he stole important military documents for the Americans.

These are just a few of the real spies who appear in this collection of riveting true stories. Boyd, Lawreance of Arabia, and others like them performed deed so daring that they became known throughout the world. Other individuals, such as Trebitsch Lincoln and Kim Trilby, became infamous for their treachery. And some, such as Mata Hari, developed reputations that were undeserved.

Whether hero, villain, or victim of circumstance, each of the spies featured here led a fscinating life, many had a significant impact on history. In engaging and vivd prose, Teri Martin uncovers the truth behind the legends and exposes readers to the dramatic and dangerous world of espionage.
