John Russell's life is complicated. The half-English, half-American journalist, who lives in Berlin, has a son from a German ex-wife and is dating a German film actress. His work is made difficult by Germany's imminent invasion of Poland—but that's not the half of it. Although he is an amateur at espionage, circumstances force him to become a spy for the Americans, the Germans, and the Russians. And he has taken a personal interest in the case of a Jewish country girl who's gone missing in the big city, too.

(The second book in the John Russell series)

hania4987 Dec 26, 2013

This book was a little unsatisfactory in the sense that it felt very transitional. Throughout the story, it seemed like all the suspense was used to set up the next chapter in this book series. John Russell tries to maintain his apolitical stance as he continues to get drawn deeper into the intrigues of the Nazi and Soviet regimes. With his newly acquired American passport and obligations, he does enjoy some immunity as he pursues his endeavors under the auspices of his journalistic career. In this chapter, he and Effi, with help, perform a truly heroic act which may have repercussions.

Good followup to Zoo Station. If you like WWII mysteries, this series should be enjoyable.
