SPAIN: Nobility - The Duque de Alba. The Red Duchess

WAISers are a well-read crowd, and I hope some one can answer this question from Linda Nyquist: "This Alba business reminded me of something I would like to know. A few years ago, an American woman wrote a couple of books; one of them was called The Spy Wore Red. It was actually quite interesting. She worked undercover for the US government, and then married into Spanish nobility and was, I believe, a duchess. Do you know anything about her? "
