Before Ian Fleming there was Dennis Wheatley. A best-selling spy novelist at the outset of World War II, Wheatley became a master of deception for Great Britain, turning pulp fiction fantasies into real-life espionage. Pulitzer Prizeâ€“winning author Tina Rosenberg tells the amazing true story of one man who applied the plots of his own novels to the battlefieldâ€”and changed the course of history.
"Fascinating."â€”San Francisco ChronicleÂ
â€śIn D for Deception, one of our more remarkable Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists reveals a stunning spy story of massive historic and cultural impact. Dennis Wheatley was Britainâ€™s most popular thriller writer in the 1930s, though his fiction is today mostly forgotten. Tina Rosenberg reveals Wheatleyâ€™s remarkable life as the mad genius in Winston Churchillâ€™s bunker. Much of his story has been obscured, but thanks to Rosenberg, we can see him clearly now. And marvel. D for Deception will change the way you look at our pastâ€”and our present.â€ť
