Ms Gehlen by Paul Shiakallis

Femme Fatale is the story of the network of spies placed all over Europe by the architect of the Cold War, Reinhardt Gehlen. These beautiful women could adapt to any circumstance, and blended perfectly into high society circles, seducing rich and powerful men to give up secrets. Leaving in a set of absurd and often bizarre crime scenes, that had the authorities baffled. Being chased all across Europe, glimpses of the femme Fatales could be seen at gala openings, balls, and society teas, surrounding themselves with the elite of society, made them untouchable to the ones chasing them. And when finally caught and interrogated, hold stead-fast in their resolve and loyalty to Gehlen. Often pretending to breakdown, but always playing the game of cat and mouse. A KALTBLUT exclusive.
