A collection of stories by

 
 
Considered by one critic to be one of the best books written on counter-espionage, Bernard Newman's collection of stories exposes the strange and at times scandalous practices of spies in the early twentieth century. A musician covertly inserts code into German songs to be played on the radio while and an old matron, 'Auntie', washes the socks of the young soldiers near Lisbon - these are the unassuming spies behind the front line who ensure the movement of enemy intelligence.

These stories may be fictional, but they reflect upon many real practices of spies during the two world wars that shook Europe and the period of uncertainty in between. Building upon his own experiences of spying, Newman shows the reader a world of espionage hitherto unseen.
