Product description

Fact: the Gestapo called her the ‘most dangerous of all Allied spies’. Find out what they were scared of! Sabotaging the Nazis. Capturing 500 Germans. Who’d have thought it of Virginia Hall – a perfectly normal young American? She didn’t look like a spy. But that was part of her genius. Although the Nazi posters shrieked ‘We must find and destroy her’, they had no idea who their nemesis actually was. So – who was she? A well-off American girl who wanted to help the war effort after losing a leg in an accident. She went to Vichy in France, helping to organise the Resistance there. With her knack for sabotage, the so-called ‘limping lady’ was soon on Hitler’s most-wanted list. But she always escaped capture, leaving the Nazis one step behind…

  • A fascinating biography of America’s greatest female spy
  • By the award-winning author of The Freedom Summer Murders
  • Thoroughly researched and full of rarely seen photographs
  • All the highlights presented in an in-depth yet readable story

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
