Overview

When struggling painter Nicholas Gray first sees Margaretha Zelle, it's in a poor photograph. But, something draws him to her. All men are drawn to Margaretha--her mysterious eyes, her effortless sensuality. In another life, she will become known as Mata Hari.

As a dancer, she becomes famous. As a seductress, she becomes legendary. Soon, Mata Hari is crisscrossing Europe, collecting generals, aristocrats and businessmen as her lovers. But, staying behind in Paris, only Gray truly loves her. He watches from afar as her shifting alliances and brushes with power entangle her in a world of espionage and danger. Can Gray save her before the trap springs shut?

Author Dan Sherman brings his mastery of modern suspense to this thrilling story of the world's most legendary femme fatale. Blending history with fiction, THE MAN WHO LOVED MATA HARI has earned its author comparison to John La Carré and Graham Greene. It will ensnare readers with its tale of the woman who held all of Europe spellbound.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although the name Mata Hari brings to mind a glamorous spy, little is now remembered about the attractive exotic dancer who was executed for espionage by the French in 1917. Some, like the author, feel that the evidence against her was fabricated. His version is told through a fictional English painter living in Paris, Nicholas Gray, her lover and friend. Her career and her alliances take her from country to country, but she maintains contact with Gray, who is manipulated by British intelligence to learn more about Mata Hari's associates. Sherman's approach is interesting, but the novel is disappointing. The prose is often leaden; scenes are interrupted by an unidentified narrator who explains events and individuals. Fact and fiction are not well blended. Only in the fight scenes is the author's ability to write well-received espionage novels evidenced. Ellen Kaye Stoppel, Drake Univ. Law Lib., Des Moines
