When struggling painter Nicholas Gray first sees Margaretha Zelle, it is in a poor photograph. But something draws him to her. All men are drawn to Margaretha - her mysterious eyes, her effortless sensuality. In another life she will become known as Mata Hari. As a dancer she becomes famous. As a seductress she becomes legendary. Soon Mata Hari is crisscrossing Europe, collecting generals, aristocrats, and businessmen as her lovers. But staying behind in Paris, only Gray truly loves her. He watches from afar as her shifting alliances and brushes with power entangle her in a world of espionage and danger. Can Gray save her before the trap springs shut?
Author Dan Sherman brings his mastery of modern suspense to this thrilling story of the world’s most legendary femme fatale. Blending history with fiction, The Man Who Loved Mata Hari has earned its author comparisons to John La Carré and Graham Greene. It will ensnare readers with its tale of the woman who held all of Europe spellbound.
