Baghdad's Spy is a unique portrait of espionage family life as told from the perspective of the daughter of a senior spy. Corinne Souza breaks the last taboo of British espionage as she describes the impact that working for MI6 can have on a spy's family. Starting in Iraq, where her father was recruited by Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), she recalls the vivacity of Baghdad's cosmopolitan society in the 1960s; how her father's harmonious relationship with the SIS collapsed in the 1970s and 1980s; and exposes SIS failure prior to the Gulf War. In what is at times a shocking portrait, she reveals how the treatment her father received was part of the disintegration of British Intelligence in Iraq that was to have such consequences in March 2003. This revealing memoir is an extraordinary account of a family's secret life, the involvement of children in espionage, and a man's struggle to balance loyalty to the Crown with the increasingly amoral demands of what became an incompetent service.
