Publisher's Summary

Paris, 1917. The notorious dancer Mata Hari sits in a cold cell awaiting freedom...or death. Alone and despondent, she is as confused as the rest of the world about the charges she's been arrested on: treason leading to the deaths of thousands of French soldiers. As she waits for her fate to be decided, she relays the story of her life to a reporter who is allowed to visit her in prison.

From Indian temples and Parisian theatres to German barracks in war-torn Europe, international best-selling author Michelle Moran, who expertly balances fact and fiction (Associated Press), brings to vibrant life the famed world of Mata Hari: dancer, courtesan, and possibly spy.

Interesting, but not her best.

I've always admired Michelle Moran's ability to bring historical characters/events to life. While I feel like I learned quite a bit about Mata Hari, I didn't feel like the character was as well developed as Moran's characters usually are.

entertaining enough...

this book did not endear me to Mata Hari. it was not it's intent, but she was a spoiled, liar that cared nothing for the "little " people of the world. was she a traitor? who knows...but it was very possible.
