The money was what made no sense. How were they able to afford the house? It must had been paid for because when it was sold Alison told her sons that the proceeds would be divided between the two of them to “ get a good start”
Alex was working in Intelligence when he met Alison. Didn’t he get paid? They lived in one dump after another. He had taught in India for 14 yrs. and written over 20 spy novels. Where was the money? When did it get better so they could buy the house? Did Alison’s mother die?
Dorothy said Alex only sent her money once, then the bombshell at the end, another needy woman, with a son, looking for her husband.
I don’t know if there really was a Coleman, but it does sound like Alex did have a handler who wanted Alison to stop digging. Why did they watch him all those years? The spy game is dangerous, if he were such a loose cannon they could have just eliminated him.
If he was so deep under cover that these women were unknowingly part of the game, it was terribly cruel thing for them to be a part of a charade.
If he were a liar,cheat, thief,just for the thrill it gave him, then he was a despicable,evil man.
It was nice to see that the families met and are quite friendly. Many of them have had accomplished careers.
The lies of Alex Wilson have touched many lives, maybe even more than we know.
