None of the connections Mata Hari made with men of wealth and importance saved her from the French firing squad on October 15, 1917. Until her last hour, she believed that her charm and personal favors would dispel the espionage charges, that her innocence would prevail. Although the prosecutor hand no evidence, no case, this exotic dancer and world famous beauty had discredited herself with the public. Coelho's brilliant account of a fiercely independent woman of history, Mata Hari, illuminates and adventurous life during dark times.
