She is little more than a footnote in history now, but half a century ago, Elizabeth Bentley was a household name. She was an apparently ordinary young American woman, who became one of the Soviet Union's most important spies in the U.S. Then she did an about face, and became the most notorious FBI informant, helping to set in motion events that eventually gave rise to the "red scare" and the McCarthy era. Now Elizabeth Bentley's story is told in Lauren Kessler's book.
