An intriguing story about Eddie Chapman, a British criminal turned Nazi spy, turned British double-agent (which explains his codename, Zigzag). The writing, while not stellar, is solid, providing a detailed account of his exploits. I find Eddie's life to be extremely interesting, and yet, at the end, there is a lack of connection between him and me. He is no paragon of virtue, not by any means, but rather than appearing human, he comes across as a more devious and dishonest (and just as honourable) James Bond. Or maybe, I simply can't empathise with him because his story is really *that* extraordinary. Still, it's a book worth reading especially if you are interested in tales of espionage or less-known aspects of WWII.
