A new level for Ology.

The year is 1958, and British spy Spencer Blake, aka "Agent K," is on an undercover mission to expose a deadly criminal organization. As he traverses the globe with his American and Soviet cohorts -- from Scotland to Berlin to Las Vegas to Cuba -- he furtively records his secret techniques in a manual for new recruits.


Once they've primed themselves on the essentials of spy craft, keen-eyed readers will discover that Agent K has been setting them challenges and clues to decipher all along. If they are clever enough to unravel them all, a great reward awaits!


A spy reveals startling secrets and carries out a breathless mission -- in an astonishing guide that takes the 'Ologies to a new level. 😀
