Sophia works at a first-aid post during the so-called ‘phoney war’ while cherishing an ambition to become a glamorous female spy. Fate ordains that she shall have her chance in this inventive, stylish satire.
When the highly imaginative Lady Sophia Garfield discovers a nest of very real German spies in her home, nobody believes her. With her maid murdered and her beloved bulldog held hostage, she sets out alone to gain proof and, with time out for tea at the Ritz, save Britain.

Such a let-down
I love NM's better known books and also her biographies. This however is just too dated and actually rather boring. The reader did quite well, but there are too many accents - Russian, German, Welsh (I think) Scottish, estuary and received English, on it goes - I gave up in chapter 3. Waste of money
