Synopsis

The Short And Bloody History Of Spies by John Farman

Listen carefully, I shall say this only once.' John Farman has been doing some espionage of his own and has uncovered the secrets that they teach spies for their own survival. This top security information will separate the rats from the moles. Spying is an ancient profession, and there have been some very exotic characters to exercise this art. From the true, Mata Hari, to the completely fictional, James Bond, there's a glamorous aura to spies and the job they do but never fear, our intrepid author will expose the truth and as always, it's not what you would expect. This message will self-destruct in five seconds.
