America’s most captivating secret agent reveals how she recruited the Duchess of Windsor—in her spellbinding sequel to The Spy Wore Red. American beauty, Spanish socialite, devoted wife and mother, spy: Aline, Countess of Romanones, made international headlines and bestseller lists with her dazzling memoir of World War II OSS adventures., The Spy Wore Red. Now she returns with a tale of danger and intrigue even more exciting than the first. It is 1966: the war has been over for more than twenty years when an ace operative, code name “Tiger” is no ordinary spy: she is Aline, Countess of Romanones, an internationally prominent socialite who can mix naturally in the right European circles and charm people into saying more than they intend to . She is the perfect operative to beat the mole at his own deadly game. To succeed at her assignment, Aline knows she must recruit a secret partner – a trusted friend whose personal loyalty is unquestioned, a public figure whose social credentials are unsurpassed , a native susceptible to the pressures of patriotism: in short, Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor. And then, in one of those extraordinary twist of espionage, Aline discovers that this assignment may give her the chance to close out some old business as well- a search for Nazi-looted art treasures that was the most frustrating mission of her OSS career. The closer Aline comes to the mole, the more she comes to see that the two cases may be fatefully intertwined-and that the danger is as great as it was twenty years before. One of the most closely guarded episodes in the annals of intelligence comes to life with the drive and drama of fiction in the The Spy Went Dancing . Moving from the drawing rooms on the ultra chic to harrowing encounters in dark, dangerous alleys, this is irresistible, real life intrigue. "An enthralling tale of intrigue and adventure among the glittering classes of Europe, by an American patriot who has been there and been the spy” –William Colby, Former Director, Central Intelligence Agency “What a story this is, Part of what makes the Countess’s books wonderful is its almost incidental look at the high life-intrigue-filled dinners in restaurants, elegant shooting parties, romantic festivals in Spain. You just can’t make this stuff up. For glamor, adventure, and old-fashioned excitement, The Spy Went Dancing is as good as it gets.” -Cosmopolitan “Thrilling, entertaining, glamorous, romantic and true” New York Daily News
