Undercover: Six female spies tell (almost) all


From the woman who was sent to track down Panama dictator Manuel Noriega, to the lady who joined the KGB for love, to the wife in France who juggled her baby and family life with cataloguing the movements of Soviet diplomats, six female former spies who worked for intelligence agencies around the world spoke to journalist Chloé Aeberhardt. She shares her perspective on the lives of female spies across the globe and whether the Hollywood image of the Bond girl is in any way close to reality.


Her 2017 book "Les Espionnes racontent" has just been republished as a graphic novel and turned into a series of animated videos.
