Henry Hemming had a real hit on his hands back in 2014 with Churchill's Iceman: The True Story of Geoffrey Pyke. Now he returns with the equally compelling tale of a man who by any measure was a paradox, the figure who did more than any other to eliminate the WWII British fascist movement despite once skirting the British Fascisti himself.

Maxwell Knight, the definitive model for Ian Fleming’s ‘M’, shaped the modern intelligence service and, as Hemming expertly lays out, was far stranger and more complex than any fiction.
