This fascinating biography about "the mysterious life of Marguerite Harrison, socialite spy" is truly stranger than fiction. Born in Maryland in 1879 to a wealthy family, Harrison defied all expectations: first marrying a man without money (who died young, leaving her penniless), and then becoming a journalist and a spy! Her remarkable adventurousness, intelligence, good looks, and charm took her all over the world—from post WWI Germany (where she sent prescient warnings back to the US government), to Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution (where she was imprisoned…and released as a double agent), to the mountains of Iran (where she added "filmmaker" to her list of accomplishments). Flirting with Danger offers history at its rip-roaring best: vivid, personal, and completely captivating.
