Originally published: London: Preface, 2017.
Despite an almost total lack of qualifications, Maxwell Knight - or 'M', as he was known - succeeded in becoming a legendary MI5 spymaster. Throughout his career, he had at his fingertips a vast network of undercover agents hidden within extremist political groups. What set him apart was not only his extraordinary ability to keep these agents in play for so many years, but his pioneering belief in the use of female secrataries as MI5 spies. Here, Henry Hemming tells the story of this remarkable and often conflicted man.
