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.

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.
