Elvira’s Secrets (Los secretos de Elvira)

The spy who changed the course of D-Day.

Elvira Chaudoir, an upper-class Peruvian who settled in Paris at the outbreak of World War II, is an intelligent, attractive, elegant, wealthy, trilingual, bisexual young woman. A gambling and nightlife addict, she was fiercely independent and very classy… Elvira was always different from the rest. So different, in fact, it seemed as if she was born in a different era from her own. She never was and never wanted to be like the other girls; she never saw the sense of obeying unfair rules without a fight.

One of her many Parisian nights of elegant suites and rivers of champagne is interrupted by the terrifying news of the invasion of the German army. That is when she embarks on a dizzying flight to London amidst the panic of a country at war.

Elvira, thanks to her peculiar profile and her connections with high society, becomes Agent Bronx, a key player in the Secret Intelligence Service of the United Kingdom, the famous MI6. She becomes a double agent thanks to her ability to interact with the German commander stationed in Paris, while continuously risking her life. She becomes part of the small and select group of top double agents created by the Allies to orchestrate the greatest distraction in the history of Intelligence: the landings at Normandy.
