The memoir of a German espionage agent working in England, a man who had been a private detective and had worked for a time with the Pinkerton Agency in the United States. This mediocre, espionage agent turned out to be a better counterspy; he does not deserve the self-ascription of “the Kaiser’s master spy.”
