MI6 Competition: MI6 has teamed up with the Berkley Publishing Group to offer copies of "Into The Lion's Mouth: The True Story of Dusko Popov: World War II Spy, Patriot, and the Real-Life Inspiration for James Bond" to lucky readers.

Dusko Popov had a storied past, starting with his expulsion from prep school as a young man. Years later he was arrested and banished from Germany for making derogatory statements about the Third Reich. And when World War II ensued, Popov became a spy, eventually serving three networks as a double agent: the German Abwehr, the British MI5 and MI6, and the US FBI. He also had a reputation for living an extravagant lifestyle and cavorting with lots of beautiful women.

"Into The Lion's Mouth" is the account of one extraordinary man’s globe-trotting entanglement with espionage, murder, assassins, and lovers―including enemy spies and a Hollywood starlet. It is a story of subterfuge, seduction, patriotism, and courage—themes that Ian Fleming would incorporate into the tales involving his iconic hero, James Bond.
