Bloomsbury presents Agent Zigzag by Ben Macintyre, read by Peter Wickham.
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 suave, courageous and unpredictable, Chapman was by turns a traitor, a hero, a villain and a man of conscience. But, as his spymasters and many lovers often wondered, who was the real Eddie Chapman?
Ben Macintyre weaves together diaries, letters, photographs, memories and top-secret MI5 files to create an exhilarating account of Britain's most sensational double agent.
"This is the most amazing book, full of fascinating and hair-raising true life adventures.... It would be impossible to recommend it too highly." (Mail on Sunday)
"Macintyre never misses a delightful, haunting or terrifying detail.... Buy it for dads everywhere but read it, too." (Observer)
"Never short on thrills." (Independent on Sunday)
