Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy - Karen Abbott

The latest book from historian Karen Abbott, Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy, tells the true story of four spies during the American Civil War. Two of the women spied for the Confederacy and two spied for the Union. These women were some of the most successful intelligence gatherers during the war, often ignored and underestimated by men on both sides of the conflict. Abbott's portrayal of their exploits reads as smoothly as any espionage thriller, tracking the women as they employed creative methods to covertly obtain and transmit information, in some instances narrowly avoiding detection and capture.
