Ten top female spies in historical mysteries and thrillers

Anna Lee Huber's latest mystery is Treacherous is the Night. One of her top ten female spies in historical mysteries and thrillers, as shared at CrimeReads:
The Alice Network by Kate Quinn

Utilizing both fictional spies and actual agents who gathered intelligence for Britain inside German-occupied France, this novel offers a glimpse into the real dangers female operatives faced during the First World War. The fact that it features the brilliant Louise de Bettignies, a women whose spy network was the most thrillingly successful during the early part of the war, is worth the read alone, but this book also touches on so much more. Dark and gripping, the dual-timeline story explores the themes of courage, loyalty, truth, and ultimately redemption.
