Description
 
For more than two centuries, New York has been a center of international
espionage. From the Revolutionary War to the present day, spies have met in the
city's dark alleys and fashionable hotels. They've traveled by horseback,
streetcar, subway, taxi, and limousine. They have lived in the shadows of
assumed identities, posing as Wall Street executives, United Nations diplomats,
and Greenwich Village artists. Motivated by profit or patriotism, these secret
agents were hailed as heroes and scorned as traitors.
This is the clandestine history of New York City. Here are the stories of covert
operatives who turned the tide of wars and shaped the history of nations. For
the first time, their secret world is compiled in a single volume covering
virtually every major espionage case that involved New York from the
Revolutionary War on.

Meet heroes and villains, the celebrated and obscure, of Big Apple espionage.
Included are the locations of safe houses, office buildings, hotels, and
apartments where history's real life spies lived, worked, and sometimes died.

Welcome to New York! Two hundred years of secrets, deception, and deceit.
