    In June 1952, in a seedy South Kensington hotel, a woman was stabbed to death by an obsessed admirer. Thus died one of the most daring and effective British agents of the Second World War. This well-researched, very readable book tells her extraordinary story. The daughter of a Polish aristocrat, Christine Granville was parachuted into occupied France to gather vital intelligence, narrowly escaping capture on several occasions thanks to the personal charisma that was to prove her final undoing. Slightly off-mint.
