A lively and fact-filled walk book of 136 sites in Central London relating to spies, spy-catchers and subversives from more than a century of London's secret history.

This is not just a fascinating read, with all of the twists and turns and betrayals that may be expected of spying, it is a very original guide book that sets out a series of London walks. This is a book that should appeal to a very wide audience because the subject is one that generates considerable interest, rivalled only by fictional detectives. This may have been done many times for battlefields but never before to expose the murky world of spies which often achieved more than a bloody battle in a foreign field.
