He was a master spy, a brilliant con man, a charmer, and a cad who lived on his wits and thrived on danger, using women shamelessly and killing where necessary--and unnecessary.

Introducing new evidence gathered from an extraordinary range of sources, Andrew Cook tells the full story of Sidney Reilly's life. He proves conclusively who Reilly was, where he came from, and the truth behind his most daring exploits.
