I, Spy is a thrilling mystery adventure set in Bletchley Park at the start of World War II, based on true events. Twelve-year-old Robyn has grown up in Bletchley Park, where her father works as a driver. When she's not at school, there's nothing she likes more than helping her dad in the garages. Then the war begins and everything at Bletchley changes.
