abstract
"Stalin's Singing Spy follows the life of Nadezhda Plevitskaya, who achieved fame as one of Nicholas II's favorite singers and infamy as one of Stalin's agents. The first Western biography and the first to reconstruct her sensationalized trial for kidnapping a White Army general, this book provides a fascinating window into Soviet-era espionage"--Provided by publisher.
