Frank Foley helped thousands of Jews escape from Germany. At the 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann, he was described as a 'Scarlet Pimpernel', risking his own life to save those threatened with death by the Nazis. However, he remains virtually unknown, largely because his job as Passport Control Officer in Berlin was a cover for his real role as MI6 'Head of Station' in the German capital. Foley was a British spy, a fact that made his efforts on behalf of the Jews even more dangerous.

He had no diplomatic immunity and was liable to arrest at any time. He not only went into the concentration camps to get Jews out but hid them in his own home, helped them to get forged passports and ignored the rules to provide them with visas for Palestine. It is estimated that he saved tens of thousands of people from the Holocaust. In this extraordinary book, bestselling author Michael Smith uncovers a remarkable man and tells his story with characteristic intelligence and humanity.

Michael Smith featured on BBC Radio's Today, discussing Foley; The Spy Who Saved 10,000 Jews.
