The topic to kick off autumn is espionage in history and legend. The book list is tentative only and VERY open to suggestion. We will away from books about anything highly contemporary because they tend to provoke partisan sniping, which is not the point of this particular group. All other suggestions, please send, bearing in mind that books that are extremely long or technical don't seem to play well in book groups.
So, here's the first version of the list, a work in progress:
Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring by Alexander Rose
The Secret Lives of Codebreakers: The Men and Women Who Cracked the Enigma Code at Bletchley Park by Sinclair McKay
The Spy Who Came in from the Cold: A George Smiley Novel by John Le Carre
Spy: The Inside Story of How the FBI's Robert Hanssen Betrayed America by David Wise
