In the past I have tried to read this author but found it hard to get into his books until I read The Spy.
A very candid look at the life and death of Mata Hari. was a great piece that really showed her depth and what and who she was.
I liked the portions best when they show her letter to her only daughter and how she feels that the French were unjust to her. she was a strong willed woman who did what she believed was best for her life in a time when being a woman was not even remotely equal.
