The title of this fast paced biography of the American spy for British Intelligence, Betty Pack, refers to some old “spook” advice about keeping a watchful eye on the one in bed with you. In the world of spy craft, technology has ushered in many changes, but some things like money, ideology, coercion, excitement remain the handiest tools for any operation.

Written with all of the complex plot layers and suspense of a novel, this book offers insights into the intelligence business while describing one of its most valued and secret assents. “The Service had all manner of agents. There were operatives who could break into enemy headquarters and make off with battle plans. Others who could ingeniously spike an ambassador’s phone. And there were teams of scalp hunters available for wet work, agents ready to cut a throat or put a bullet between the eyes. But there were few–arguably none–with Betty’s soft, coaxing touch.”

Howard Blum, a seasoned writer, takes risks which pay great dividends to the reader who will find themselves easily caught up in the magical web fashioned by the elusive Betty Pack, code name, Cynthia.
