Two critically acclaimed and internationally bestselling tales of World War II espionage from the master of suspense, Ben Macintyre
One December night in 1942, a Nazi parachutist landed in a Cambridgeshire field. His mission- to sabotage the British war effort. His name was Eddie Chapman, but he would shortly become MI5 's Agent Zigzag. Dashing and louche, courageous and unpredictable, inside the traitor was a hero; inside the villain, a man of conscience.

In April 1943, a corpse later identified as Major William Martin of the Royal Marines is discovered floating in the sea off the coast of Spain. A leather attache case, secured to his belt, reveals an intelligence gold mine- top-secret Allies ' invasion plans. But Major William Martin never existed. The body is that of a dead tramp and every single document is fake. It was the most extraordinary deception ever planned by Churchill 's spies, and an outrageous lie that travelled all the way to Hitler 's desk.
In these two Sunday Times No. 1 bestsellers, Ben Macintyre weaves together diaries, letters, photographs, memories and top-secret MI5 files into exhilarating accounts of undercover daring and deceit.
