#BookReview – The Spy by Paulo Coelho

Told through Mata Hari’s final letter, THE SPY tells the unforgettable story of a woman who dared to break the conventions of her time, and paid the price.
She led a tragic life seeking to reclaim from men and officials what had been stolen from her emotionally over and over again. She tried to get back at them by becoming a strip artiste or ‘exotic dancer’ as they were then known, by using her body to make money enabling her to live a comfortable independent life.

This was a short interesting read as I really didn’t know much about Mata Hari. I recognise the name of course from the old Greta Garbo film and old spy movies in which there would have been a Mata Hari ‘type’ femme fatal.

Thanks to NetGalley for my digital copy.
