In 1942, the Gestapo called her “the most dangerous of all Allied spies”. She was Virginia Hall, a young American rejected from the Foreign Service because of her gender, who became the first woman to deploy to occupied France. Sonia Purnell brings novelistic panache to A Woman of No Importance, the breathtaking story of how one woman’s persistence helped win the war. 

Drawing on a wealth of previously classified material, A Spy Named Orphan by Roland Philipps tells the full story, for the first time, of Donald Maclean, one of the most dangerous and enigmatic Soviet agents of the twentieth century.
