BEVERLY HILLS SPY The Double-Agent War Hero Who Helped Japan Attack Pearl Harbor

by | Read by Sam Dewhurst-Phillips

Biography & Memoir • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Sam Dewhurst-Phillips's sonorous narration sets the right tone for this true story of Frederick Rutland, a double-dealing British war hero who spied for Japan in the run-up to Pearl Harbor. Like his Hollywood friend Boris Karloff, Rutland was a man who wore many masks. He earned the nickname "Rutland of Jutland" for his heroics during the 1916 Battle of Jutland. His engineering skills helped create the modern aircraft carrier. As a bon vivant, he conned the Hollywood crowd. And most infamously, he spied for Japan as Agent Shinkawa. His remarkable story features a disparate group of characters, including Charlie Chaplin's butler, Yoko Ono's father, the secretive head of MI5 known as "K," and Alan Mowbray, the butler in the Topper films.
