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.

    I am a real fan of espionage thrillers, especially those that are true. The author skillfully tells the story of this fascinating spy along with his Nazi and British handlers. You get a real sense of the dangers they face. You also see their human side. I would also highly recommend 'Operation Mincemeat' by this same author.
