Memoir, autobiographical, of Claire Philips, carries the subtitle A Woman's Fight Against Agent High Pockets This American entertainer living in Manila in 1941. She joined the underground there when the invading Japanese kill her husband. What's better than a woman set on revenge? This woman, owner of the Tsubuki Nightclub, spikes the drinks of Japanese invaders and seduces them to gather military intelligence. She even smuggles contraband in her underwear, bribes Japanese guards to aid or rescue imprisoned American POWs. Eventually discovered and captured, she lives a prisoner's life . . . But, you get the idea. More exciting than most fiction, and filled with the news of the day.
