More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The adventurous spirit of Brooklyn-born Aline Griffith led to a danger- and glamor-filled career as an agent for the Office of Strategic Services in WW II Madrid where, as a member of international high society, she infiltrated a German spy network that threatened Allied invasion plans. In her suspenseful account, including admittedly reinvented dialogue and, one suspects, occasional dramatic embellishment, she recalls not only her undercover exploits but romances with a traitorous counterspy, a celebrated matador and encounters with the Spanish grandee she later married. Elegant parties in palaces and estates, flamenco cafes and the Prado Museum served as settings for her intrigues and hair-raising escapades about which she now entertains audiences on the lecture circuit. First serial to Vanity Fair. (May 18)
Library Journal
An American who later married into the Spanish nobility, the author began her career as a ``queen of international society'' by working as a decoder for the OSS. Her book describes how she (nee Aline Griffith) was recruited by the OSS while working as a model at Hattie Carnegie's, trained in espionage, and sent to Madrid. Once there, says Romanones, she decoded secret messages, organized a chain of women spies, and mingled among the cream of Spanish society to ferret out information about Nazis and German sympathizers. The author also details her lifestyle among the rich and famous. Indeed, so active was her social life that one wonders how she had any time for business. Still, since the book may well be destined for bestsellerdom, public libaries will want to consider. Essentially silly, however. Ann Sullivan, Tomkins Cortland Community Coll. Lib., Dryden, N.Y.

    Truth or fiction

    Aline Griffith wants to join her brothers in helping her country during the war. But she's female and not old enough for the few professions that allow women to help. She complains to a man she meets on a double date and the next thing she knows she's on her way to be trained as a spy.
    Sent to Spain to learn the local gossip is the easy part. Telling who is on her side is the hard part.

    This book is labeled as non-fiction, but I found that really hard to believe. There are quite a few critics out there saying why they think the book is real or not. But my personal observation begins in the forward. The author freely admits that she's changed circumstances or people to make the story more interesting or to hide the identity of someone.

    But if you take the story as fiction it's a very fun and entertaining read. It sheds a little light on to how the people lived during the 40s and keeps you glued the entire book. I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it. You might not believe it's non-fiction, but you will enjoy it.

    A spy with class and intellegence

    this book is one i reread often, its content and witty style remain fresh. The heroine is an average woman who navigates a world of intrigue, men and social class with style. I highly recommend it for everyone, especially those who like historical romance and mystery without the graphic sex.

    Facinating Reading

    I could barely put down any of the 3 books in this series. Glamour, suspense, dangerous characters, it's all there, all true. Set in exotic WWII-era Spain and written in an engaging style, it is facinating reading. Someone needs to get started on the screenplay!
