Overview

For more than two centuries, New York has been a center of international espionage. From the Revolutionary War to the present day, spies have met in the city's dark alleys and fashionable hotels. They've traveled by horseback, streetcar, subway, taxi, and limousine. They have lived in the shadows of assumed identities, posing as Wall Street executives, United Nations diplomats, and Greenwich Village artists. Motivated by profit or patriotism, these secret agents were hailed as heroes and scorned as traitors.

This is the clandestine history of New York City. Here are the stories of covert operatives who turned the tide of wars and shaped the history of nations. For the first time, their secret world is compiled in a single volume covering virtually every major espionage case that involved New York from the Revolutionary War on.

Meet heroes and villains, the celebrated and obscure, of Big Apple espionage. Included are the locations of safe houses, office buildings, hotels, and apartments where history's real life spies lived, worked, and sometimes died.

Welcome to New York! Two hundred years of secrets, deception, and deceit.
