Even spies can have a bad day.

History teaches us that countries devote tremendous amounts of time and resources to spying on their perceived enemies. However, even the most carefully thought-out and well-financed top-secret plans can fail. In fact, they are often foiled by something beyond a spy's control, something impossible to have predicted, such as:

Allied paratroops accidentally landing at an outdoor movie for German troops Hungry ants revealing a secret spy tunnel in Ancient India A Cold War spy cat getting squashed by a car

The 20 stories in Spy, Spy Again take readers on a bumpy ride through history, exposing excruciating tales of espionage botched by bad luck, rotten timing, miscommunication, incompetence, hubris and betrayal.

Whether set in Ancient China or Ancient India, during the Cold War or World War II, these stories of suspense and intrigue will captivate readers. Tina Holdcroft's incisive graphic narrative and delightfully witty illustrations make these accounts of failed spies come to life.
