THE WOMAN ALL SPIES FEAR Code Breaker Elizebeth Smith Friedman and Her Hidden Life

by | Read by Samantha Desz

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Samantha Desz narrates the story of Elizebeth Smith Friedman, who was a key but hidden figure in breaking codes against America's enemies, both foreign and domestic. She cracked codes against the Mob and took down bootleggers for the Treasury Department and Nazis for the Navy. Desz puts listeners into Friedman's head and heart. Her male supervisors continually undercut and underestimated her, and Desz captures each sting and, more importantly, each triumph in the face of misogyny. Desz so successfully pulls listeners into this incredible woman's life that it's a good idea to have tissues handy for the inevitable conclusion.
