Macintyre never misses a delightful, haunting or terrifying detail ... Buy it for dads everywhere but read it too' Observer

Top Customer Reviews
Despite an uncertainty about his motives, it is hard not to agree with the author's implying that Chapman was hard done by By British intelligence at the end of the war, both in the way he was treated by his case officer and the lack of real recognition - even if his criminal record was cleared unofficially, whilst recognising that the secret needed to be kept long after the war ended.
An entertaining and accessible book that would be of interest to scholar and amateur alike.
Would make an excellent movie.
Astonishing that he got away with it and survived.
