"The thrilling true story of Canada's greatest spy, Agent A12. In public life, Nova Scotian Dr. Winthrop Bell was a wealthy businessman and Harvard philosophy professor. As MI6 Secret Agent A12, he dodged gunfire and shook pursuers to break open the emerging Nazi conspiracy in electrifying 1919 Berlin. Under cover as a Reuters reporter, he interviewed royalty, military informants, and intellectuals like Albert Einstein and Edith Stein. He followed clues to crack a deadly mystery and sounded the earliest warning of the Nazi plot for WWII. His reports went directly to the man known as C, the legendary founder of MI6, as well as to the prime ministers of Britain and Canada. But a powerful fascist politician quietly suppressed his alerts. Bell became a spy once again in the face of WWII. In 1939, he was the first to crack Hitler's deadliest secret code: the Holocaust. At that time the F├╝hrer was a popular politician who said he wanted peace. Could anyone believe Bell's shocking warning? Fighting an epic intelligence war from Ukraine, Russia, Poland and the Baltic to France, Germany, Canada and Washington, D.C., A12 was the real-life 007, waging a single-handed fight against madmen bent on destroying the world. Without Bell's astounding courage, the Nazis could have won the war. Cracking the Nazi Code is the first book to illuminate the exploits of Winthrop Bell, Agent A12."--
