From living in a tin-roofed shack north of Dar-es-Salaam to becoming Baroness Park of Monmouth, Daphne Park led a most unusual life - one that consisted of a lifelong love affair with the world of Britain's secret services. In the 1970s she was appointed to the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) most senior operational rank as one of its seven Area Controllers- an extraordinary achievement for a women working within this most male-dominated and secretive of organisations. In this first biography for twenty years of any Cold War British spy -the defectors Philby and Blake apart - Paddy Hayes recounts the fascinating story of the evolution of the SIS from World War II to the Cold War and beyond through the eyes of one of its outstanding and most unusual operatives. He provides the reader with one of the most intimate narratives yet of how the modern SIS actually went about its business whether in Moscow, Hanoi or the Congo. Queen of Spies captures the paranoia, the real life 'wilderness of mirrors' aspect of intelligence work finally unveiling all that it may be possible to know about the life of one of Britain's most celebrated spies.
