Description - A Spy Has No Friends by Ronald Seth

From the beginning of his mission as a British agent against the Nazis, Ronald Seth was a hunted man. Shot at as he parachuted down to the Estonian coast, he suffered extremes of deprivation before being captured and sentenced to death by hanging. And then the real hunt began - for what he knew, and for his identity. Seth had only one hope - could he convince his captors that he was a Nazi sympathiser and trick them into employing him as a spy? Enlisted as a German agent, in a position of precarious trust and constant danger, he embarked on a nightmare journey that took him from occupied Paris to the dark heart of the Nazi regime during the fall of Berlin. A SPY HAS NO FRIENDS is the thrilling story of a man playing a dangerous game against a lethal opponent.
