  • Spy novel fans

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 overall


What’s better than a World War II spy novel with a enigmatic woman at the center? A completely true one.  MacArthur’s Spies tells the story of Claire Phillips, an American singer adept in the art of  deception who remained in Manila during its occupation by the Japanese. Together with naval intelligence officer “Chick” Parsons and insurgent leader Colonel John Boone, Claire leads a cast of colorful characters in this work of historical non-fiction that reads like a novel, is set in a nightclub, and has been compared to Casablanca.
