The book is split into the different stories about each secret agent, however sometimes it repeated facts that we learnt in the introduction or in other stories multiple times. I would have liked to know a bit more background about female secret agents in general before focusing on the individual agents, however this might be personal preference as I like learning about history. I didn't feel like the book was concluded very well, I think it could have done with a chapter to finish, perhaps to pay tribute to the other female agents not mentioned in the book? Again, personal preference perhaps. I would definitely recommend it.
in the book with a little content.
