For everyone who's ever wondered what it really takes to be a spy, legendary author Graham Greene (The Third Man, The Quiet American) and his brother Hugh have compiled this irresistible selection of fiction, memoir, and tricks of the trade straight from the all-time masters of espionage. Here is a perfectly safe way to discover the dangerous secrets many spies have died to learn.
Want to know how to hide a map of an enemy fort in a butterfly sketch? Wonder why James Bond himself advises always drinking vodka with pepper?
Who hasn't fantasized about being a secret agent or been captivated by the mysterious lore of spycraft? From the words of William Blake, D. H.

If this book divulged any more secrets, it would've had to be written with invisible ink. (Find out how to make your own inside!)
