The spy

Coelho, Paulo, 1947-2016
Books, Manuscripts
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; a confidant and courtesan who 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. Until, in 1917 she was arrested in her hotel room on the Champs Elysees and accused of espionage. Told through Mata'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.
