A Taste For Treason is the dramatic, untold story of how a Nazi spy’s letter, posted in New York and intercepted in Scotland in 1938, broke spy rings across Europe and North America. Following parallel Nazi espionage plots in the UK and USA and an extraordinary cast of characters as they converged on a Scottish post office, this is a thrilling true story of the international spy hunt that followed.
Dr. Andrew Jeffrey will discuss with Dr. Nicola Small the remarkable housewife spy catcher who set MI5 on the trail of Nazi Germany’s most notorious spy in pre-war Britain and how that single letter marked the genesis of an intelligence sharing and security alliance that today includes the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, the so-called Five Eyes.
Pre-order A Taste for Treason published on October 6th.
