Reading list: Women of Intelligence
In tune with the 2018 BookLikes "Summer of Spies" and my "Women Writers" project, a few books on spies and spying written by women ... and a few books on woman spies written by men.
Note: 007, from Jane Moneypenny's POV.
Note: "The Queen of Spy Novelists"? Or so they call her ... we'll see.
Note: Book no. 2 in the Liz Carlyle series -- book no. 1 is "At Risk". I liked it.
Note: The author -- and the book -- that inspired the James Bond novels.
Note: Added at Tigus's suggestion, and what a good suggestion it was!
Note: Pass the gin. (Also: strictly on audio.) ... Or so I thought. Actually, this turned out surprisingly entertaining!
Note: An English actress in early 1930s Berlin, infiltrating the social circle of Magda Goebbels.
Note: An alternative post-9/11 Germany (and Eastern Europe) -- not half as well realized as Jane Thynne's 1930s Berlin in "Black Roses" (above).
Note: A misfit, from Bethesda, MD, to spying in Argentina.
Thanks for the recommendation, Mike (audiobookjunkie)!
Note: Judging by the blurbs, most of Lynds's books don't appeal to me, but this one sounds like it might.
Note: First in the series.
Note: Working with the French Résistance was just one of Josephine Baker's many occupations and faces.
Note: The Confederate spy whom Southern newspapers alternately celebrated as "Joan of Arc of the South", "Siren of the Shenandoah", and "Cleopatra of the Secession".
Note: Mata Hari
Note: An Australian in the French Résistance. The Nazis called her "The White Mouse", due to her nimbleness and skill at evading capture.
Note: Well, look and behold what updating my personal library data has produced ... I didn't even remember this was on my TBR! But how can this possibly *not* be on my "Summer of Spies" reading list?
Note: Honorary mention: Perhaps not a spy novel as such, but the mother of all swashbucklers -- written by a woman, and starring a power couple specializing in infiltrating the enemy's side every which way and then some.
"They seek him here, they seek him there ..."
