    'Where a leaf moves', according to an old Farsi saying, 'underneath you will find an Englishman'. Between the Crimean and the First World Wars, an anonymous-looking townhouse in Queen Anne's Gate was the headquarters of the shadowy Intelligence Division of the War Office. Drawing on an encyclopedic array of little-known sources, this book tells the dramatic story of its network of intrepid spies who promoted the interests of the British Empire across the globe, by fair means - or foul.
