The Spy Wore Red | [Aline, Countess of Romanones]

The Spy Wore Red

When Aline Griffith was born in Pearl River, New York, in 1923, one might have guessed from her exceptional beauty that a career as an actress or model might be in her future. Few would have imagined that twenty-one years later, she would find herself in Spain as a deep-cover OSS agent, infiltrating the highest levels of Spanish society, or that five years later still, she would marry a Spanish grandee and become one of the most watched, most admired, most fascinating women of international society. This is the story of Aline, Countess of Romanones, a story of courage, beauty and success that is far more exciting than any fictionalized thriller.

    "The Narration of this Book Was So Poor I Quit"
    What would have made The Spy Wore Red better?

    The narration was flat and uninspired, so poor, in fact, that I was unable to finish listening to the book.
