About this title

Synopsis:

The author describes a 1966 mission when she was called out of semi-retirement to uncover a highly placed NATO mole, an assignment for which she recruited an old friend, Wallis Simpson

From School Library Journal:

YA-- A book that seems as if it came from the pen of one of our popular writers of escapist fiction, this is the autobiography of a beautiful young woman from a small town in New York who was recruited by the OSS during World War II and sent to Spain as a spy. Her successful and dangerous career came to an end in 1947 when she married into one of Spain's oldest and most prestigious families and became a countess. Most of this part of her story was told in The Spy Wore Red (Random, 1987). After almost 20 years as one of Spain's most glamorous socialities, Aline Romanones is again recruited by the CIA to help uncover a mole in NATO headquarters in Paris. During the course of her exploits, she crosses paths with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, the embalmed body of Eva Peron, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The glimpses into the lives of the super-rich and the super-famous alone make the book interesting; the addition of the drama and real danger makes it irresistible. This is the perfect book to hand to girls who love Danielle Steel, Judith Krantz, etc., and who think they don't like nonfiction.
