The Spy

The Spy

By  Paulo Coelho

The Spy tells the unforgettable story of a woman who dared to break the conventions of her time, and paid the price.

When Mata Hari arrived in Paris she was penniless.
Soon she was feted as the most elegant woman in the city.

A dancer who shocked and delighted audiences, as a confidante and courtesan she bewitched the era’s richest and most powerful men.

But as paranoia consumed a country at war, Mata Hari’s lifestyle brought her under suspicion. In 1917 she was arrested in her hotel room on the Champs–Élysées and accused of espionage.

Told through Mata Hari's final letter, The Spy is the unforgettable story of a woman who dared to break the conventions of her time, and paid the price.
