AGENT ZIGZAG – Ben Macintyre, 2007

I don’t read a lot of spy novels these days. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them; it’s just that I have other priorities on my list.
If this book was a spy novel, I would be pleased that I had dipped back into the genre. What makes it even better, is that it is not a novel.
The wartime exploits of Eddie Chapman are almost too fantastic to be true. I suppose we must admit that in the heat of war strange things happen and are allowed to happen; the usual rules do not apply. But even so, he experienced more in six years than most people do in a lifetime; came out of it with a smile on his face and remained a crook for the rest of his life.
