THE LAST GOODNIGHT provides an intriguing glimpse into the world of espionage during WWII. It covers the life and career of the until now little-known socialite, femme fatale, and spy, Betty Pack. Author Howard Blum takes an unsympathetic look at this complex, morally bankrupt heroine while documenting her missions/exploits, and ultimately recognizing her invaluable contributions toward the Allied victory. A little slow at the beginning and a little too long, this well-researched work of non-fiction reads like a suspense novel with just enough “sensationalism” to keep one engaged. Can a feature film be far behind?

She might have been a great spy, but seemed to lack warmth and was very narcissistic .

Blum writes an engaging biography of an American woman married to a British diplomat who thrived as a spy for the British during WW II.

Amazing and well-documented! The Minnesota connection I’d heard about is pretty thin.
