 About the Book 

Mata Hari - a seductress so dazzling in her eroticism, so reckless in her passion - became the one symbol of the exotic, or moral abandonment, in her own time. With clear conscience and bold instinct she engaged in infamous and clandestine affairsMoreMata Hari - a seductress so dazzling in her eroticism, so reckless in her passion - became the one symbol of the exotic, or moral abandonment, in her own time. With clear conscience and bold instinct she engaged in infamous and clandestine affairs with the most significant and powerful men in Europe. Her arrest for treason against the French government in 1917 sparked one of the most hate-filled and incendiary trials the continent had witnessed since the Dreyfus affair.In this rendition of the events that led to Mata Haris trial, he recreates her spying for the French and the Germans- the mission for the Bolsheviks that led to her downfall- and her wild love affair with Adam, the blinded Polish aristocrat who propelled Mata Hari into the secret task what was to be her undoing.
