Book - Agent Zigzag

This is a fascinating book by Ben Macintyre about Edward Chapman, who became Agent Zigzag.   He was a bit of crook before the WWII broke out and he was on the run from the British police so he suggested to the Germans that he worked for them as a spy and saboteur.  Once the Germans were convinced he was genuine he was sent over to Britain to sabotage the British war effort.  Once he arrived in Britain he went straight to the British police and from there became a double-agent.
