Minnie Gray doesn’t want an ordinary life as a married woman. She craves excitement and a sense of purpose. So when she gets her chance, she takes it. But she soon learns that an extraordinary life comes with extraordinary risks.
It all began at a garden party in the summer of 1928. Minnie is recruited by the British government as a spy. Moving to London, she is placed at the heart of the Communist movement. It turns out she is a natural talent, and soon she gains the trust of important leaders.
As Minnie takes on more and more responsibilities, her job becomes increasingly dangerous. Leading a double life is starting to take its toll on her relationships. She also knows that the Russians are notorious for ruthlessly disposing of people given the slightest suspicion. What if they find out?
A BEAUTIFUL SPY is based on the life of Olga Gray.
