Nine Lives: True Spy Stories from Mata Hari to Kim Philby Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Nine Lives, Fitzroy Maclean brilliantly tells the true stories of nine remarkable spies. Among them, there is the captivating Mata Hari: who was executed by firing squad for allegedly spying for Germany during World War I; Richard Sorge: leader of the Tokyo Espionage Ring and the man who informed Stalin of the German attack on Russia in 1941 weeks before it happened; and Kim Philby--the "third man"--a prominent member of British Intelligence, a communist and a spy for the KGB. Brimming with drama and adventure, Nine Lives separates myth from reality and vividly brings alive the characters and events that surrounded these nine legendary spies.

Synopsis:

One of the classics of spy literature - from the man who was the inspiration for "James Bond."

About the Author

Sir Fitzroy Maclean (1911-1996) served in many capacities during World War II, including Winston Churchill's personal envoy. Diplomat, soldier, statesman, traveller, writer--a true modern hero--Sir Fitzroy was often put forward as the model for his friend Ian Flemings "James Bond."
