In December 1939, a wealthy Jewish beauty queen described by the British Secret Service as a "flaming Polish patriot...expert skier and great adventuress," made a bold proposal to the British government: She would ski into Nazi-occupied Poland via the Carpathian mountains to deliver British counter-propaganda material to her desperate countrymen. This would be the first mission for the "absolutely fearless" woman who became known as Christine Granville, Britain's first female special agent. Armed with beauty, charm, and determination - and leaving a trail of infatuated men in her wake - Granville would go on to complete numerous undercover operations during the war, serving in Egypt and the Middle East, and even parachuting into occupied France. Clare Mulley presents a passionate and lively biography of this remarkable woman, bringing to life her courageous adventures, up until her untimely death at the hands of a former lover. It's a real-life espionage thriller with a mesmerizing heroine! (AG)
