Full description for Agent Zigzag
"Ben Macintyre's rollicking, spellbinding "Agent Zigzag" blends the spy-versus- spy machinations of John le Carre with the high farce of Evelyn Waugh." --William Grimes, The "New York Times" A "New York Times" Notable Book of the Year A "Washington Post" Best Book of 2007 One of the Top 10 Best Books of 2007 ("Entertainment Weekly") "New York Times" Best of the Year Round-Up "New York Times" Editors' Choice Eddie Chapman was a charming criminal, a con man, and a philanderer. He was also one of the most remarkable double agents Britain has ever produced. Inside the traitor was a man of loyalty; inside the villain was a hero. The problem for Chapman, his spymasters, and his lovers was to know where one persona ended and the other began. Based on recently declassified files, "Agent Zigzag" tells Chapman's full story for the first time. It's a gripping tale of loyalty, love, treachery, espionage, and the thin and shifting line between fidelity and betrayal.
