Reviews

"Fascinating. . . . Reading more like a suspense novel than history, Blum's account brings an unsung heroine to vivid life. . . . Well documented."--Kirkus Reviews
"Skillfully researched and entertainingly written. . . . A provocative biography."--Library Journal
"Scrupulously researched...Blum successfully delineates the social forces in play at the time and conveys the irresistible magnetism that turned a young woman into a world-class spy."--Publishers Weekly
"A dazzling masterwork of narrative nonfiction that is The Last Goodnight. Howard Blum has vividly captured the extraordinary life of a passionate, complicated, thoroughly modern woman who did nothing less than help win World War II."--Mitchell Zuckoff, New York Times-bestselling author of Lost in Shangri-La, Frozen in Time, and 13 Hours
