KIRKUS REVIEW

Seeing the acts in a continuum of the spy's life is an important element in most of these short biographies by the author of Marco Polo (Messner, 1952) and much adult fiction and non-fiction. Covering periods from the Revolutionary War to the present, and territory around the world, the famous spies and cases include Nathan Hale, Karl Schulmeister, T. E. Lawrence, the ""Alice Service"" of World War I, the Keuhns of Honolulu who helped the Japanese prior to Pearl Harbor. A nice roundup of well told, sometimes twice told tales, that complements The Real Book About Spies by Beryl and Samuel Epstein.
