Publisher's Summary

Margaretha Geertruida Zelle (1876 – 1917), better known by the stage name Mata Hari, was a Dutch exotic dancer who was convicted of being a spy and executed by firing squad in France during the first World War.

Sir Basil Home Thomson, KCB (1861 – 1939) was a British intelligence officer, police officer, prison governor, colonial administrator, and writer. Thomson interviewed Mata Hari in London in 1915 as part of a British investigation into her espionage activities.

This is his first hand account of that meeting. He also recounts the interrogation of other female foreign spies during his period in office.

few facts

Slim content delivered with an annoying accent, all in all, a waste of time. Even 20 minutes was too long for this.
