Noor Inayat Khan is a woman for our age: a true heroine who faced down evil when she saw it and sacrificed her life for the cause of freedom. Arthur Magida's biography is both a thrilling spy story and a moving portrait of her courage.--Amanda Foreman, author of A World on Fire
An intimate and compelling portrait of the most extraordinary undercover agent of World War II. Noor Inayat Khan's story is one of courage, heroism, and tragedy: Magida's fascinating biography delves deep into the life of this devout Sufi woman whose moral imperative was to fight fascism at all costs--even if that meant putting herself in mortal danger.--Giles Milton, author of Soldier, Sailor, Frogman, Spy
Thanks to the dexterous work of Arthur Magida, Noor Inayat Khan finally takes her rightful place in world history. Free-spirited, glamorous, devout--embodying a life of mysticism and the arts--the only Indian woman spy fighting fascism in the golden age of Euro-American spying.--Ruby Lal, author of Empress: The Astonishing Reign of Nur Jahan
Code Name Madeleine is one of the finest and most affecting true stories of espionage I have read--an engrossing tale of an amazing woman and her immense courage in the face of evil.--Alex Kershaw, author of Avenue of Spies
