I only have Nine Lives (True Spy Stories from Mata Hari to Kim Philby)


I have slowly been getting into reading more non fiction books and this one sounds like one I would enjoy.








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.
