Hidden in Plain Sight


Espionage and Conspiracy from the American Revolution to the Cold War
Whether you like your spies historical, fictional, female, famous, dignified, or double-dealing, we've got you covered. Our spy books and DVDs span the American Revolution and the Civil War to WWII, the Cold War, and beyond.

Few government organizations go unexamined on our Secret Societies bookshelf; the OSS, CIA and NSA, to the SOE, Bletchley Park, MI-5, MI-6, and the SS and NKVD are all included here. You'll also find books about the Templars, the Freemasons, several religious plots, and a secret debating club whose members included Elizabethan English playwright Christopher Marlowe.

If conspiracy theories are your cup of tea, we've got you covered. Our book and DVD selection covers conspiracies of all kinds—from plots to assassinate Sir Walter Raleigh, Abraham Lincoln, William McKinley, Adolf Hitler, and John F. Kennedy to details of the Bay of Pigs Invasion, and Watergate.
