Summary

Danielle Steel nos transporta desde la Segunda Guerra Mundial hasta los años de la Guerra Fría en esta historia repleta de emoción y aventura.

A los dieciocho años, Alexandra Wickham se presenta ante el rey Jorge V y la reina María de Inglaterra con un exquisito vestido de satén y encaje blanco. Bella y deslumbrante, parece destinada a tener una vida privilegiada, pero su personalidad rebelde y el estallido de la Segunda Guerra Mundial la llevarán por un camino muy diferente.

En 1939, Europa está en llamas y Alex se presenta voluntaria como enfermera. Inmediatamente, su talento y la fluidez con el francés y alemán llaman la atención de los servicios secretos del Gobierno. Mientras sus seres queridos pagan el terrible precio de la guerra, Alex se convierte en Cobra, una espía que opera tras las líneas enemigas jugándoselo todo a vida o muerte.

Con un día a día marcado por el secreto que debe guardar pase lo que pase, el precio que Alex tiene que pagar es que nadie descubra su doble vida, ni siquiera Richard, el piloto que le ha robado el corazón.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A young woman is caught up in a dangerous double life on behalf of her country during World War II in Danielle Steel’s thrilling new novel.
 
At eighteen, Alexandra Wickham is presented to King George V and Queen Mary in an exquisite white lace and satin dress her mother has ordered from Paris. With her delicate blond looks, she is a stunning beauty who seems destined for a privileged life. But fate, a world war, and her own quietly rebellious personality lead her down a different path.

By 1939, Europe is on fire and England is at war. From her home in idyllic Hampshire, Alex makes her way to London as a volunteer in the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry. But she has skills that draw the attention of another branch of the service. Fluent in French and German, she would make the perfect secret agent.

Within a year, Alex is shocking her family in trousers and bright red lipstick. They must never know about the work she does—no one can know, not even the pilot she falls in love with. While her country and those dearest to her pay the terrible price of war, Alex learns the art of espionage, leading to life-and-death missions behind enemy lines and a long career as a spy in exotic places and historic times.

Spy follows Alex’s extraordinary adventures in World War II and afterward in India, Pakistan, Morocco, Hong Kong, Moscow, and Washington, D.C., when her husband, Richard, enters the foreign service and both become witnesses to a rapidly changing world from post-war to Cold War. She lives life on the edge, with a secret she must always keep hidden.
