Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YAA wealth of information about the practice of spying, illustrated with a variety of well-captioned photographs, reproductions, charts, and sketches. The introduction puts forth the motivation for spying to be contained in the acronym MICEmoney, ideology, compromise, and ego. There is a breakdown of the types of spiescouriers, double agents, defectors, saboteurs, moles, and more. Illustrations of their hidden devices and tools are also included. The sections on equipment and technique, clandestine communications, and weapons are fascinating. Here the sketches and photos are most compelling. A final chapter instructs on "How To Be a Spy" and includes training and recruitment, covers, and networks.Frances Reiher, Fairfax Public Library System, VA

    ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!!

    I can not begin to explain what an incredible book this is. Ever wondered what it would be like to be James Bond? BINGO! This book contains everything from surveillance equipment to rectal concealment of tools. You'll never get tired of it. Each time you pick it up to read, you'll see something that you missed before. It contains hundreds of full color pictures. There are things in here you'll never find anywhere else. A great gift for espionage enthusiasts.
