I love Charles Todd books, but this is my favorite. Love stories aside, the detail and imagery of the front line aid stations are excellent and gripping.

Betty Pack was charming, beautiful, and intelligent - and she knew it. As an agent for Britain's MI6 and then America's OSS during World War II, these qualities proved crucial to her success. This is the remarkable story of this "Mata Hari from Minnesota" ( Time) and the passions that ruled her tempestuous life - a life filled with dangerous liaisons and death-defying missions vital to the Allied victory.

It was good, helped pass the time while I was driving! Some of the introspection of her motivations for launching into her affairs was a bit unrealistic, but I enjoyed it overall.
