KIRKUS REVIEW

(Odd coincidence, this, of the two ""White Lady"" titles being published on the same day. See that your staff keeps them clearly defined as they are sure to result in confusion in the minds of customers)....This is a highly successful follow -up on the popular All's Fair, the story of the British Secret Service, published last year. The organization known as The White Lady was featured somewhat briefly in that volume. Here is its full story -- the absorbing factual account of the largest secret service on the Allied front. Thrilling reading, crammed with material for a hundred and more first rate novels of sheer adventure, and made doubly interesting by the authentic detail regarding methods, frontier machinations, secret codes, court trials, executions, hairbreadth escapes, prison activities, and the vast network of personnel, including men, women and children, peasants and nobles, monks and nuns. The story of the German Secret Service has its place. Authentic documents are quoted in detail. Last letters of famous spies are included. Personally, I found it better constructed and more interesting reading than the earlier book. Assuredly, its market should include all the enthusiastic readers of All's Fair. Heavy promotion.
