The story of spying
It's a great book I am 7 and I love this book so much. I would say people like me who think spying is amazing should read this book. It tells you some fascinating facts about SOE spyies they are very posh people I learnt. Its got 6 amazing chapters Alexander the Great created a network of secret agents. All I have got to say is try this book.
