Description
Charming, suave, and utterly ruthless, Otto Katz may well have been the perfect spy in the golden years of international intrigue. From Hitler's rise to power, through World War II, and into the Cold War, Katz was at the center of Russia's web, and his fingerprints can be found on one world-changing event after another. Through recently released FBI, MI5, and Czech intelligence files, Jonathan Miles has created this action-packed story of the life (or lives) of one of the world's most successful spies and the shadow world he inhabited.

"Spies should be glamorous—James Bond in a Savile Row suit rather than Harry Palmer in a grubby mac.... In those terms, Otto Katz was perfect. He was a Hollywood playboy who hobnobbed with Fritz Lang, he inspired the character of Victor Laszlo in Casablanca, he was a drinking buddy of Bertolt Brecht and among his lovers he claimed Marlene Dietrich. He was even known to Nöel Coward."—Times (London)
