The Spy Who Loved is the thrilling untold story of Christine Granville, one of World War II's most daring and highly decorated special agents.

Daughter of a Polish aristocrat and his Jewish wife, Christine fled to Britain on the outbreak of war and was recruited by the intelligence service, taking on mission after mission. She skied into occupied Poland, served in Egypt and later parachuted into occupied France. Her quick wit and courage won her release from arrest more than once, and saved the lives of several fellow officers, including one of her many lovers just hours before he was to be executed by the Gestapo.
While remarkably surviving the war, she was murdered in 1952 by an obsessed colleague in a London hotel.
