Review by heidijane
This was a tightly written, and gripping thriller, that appears understated at first glance, as it doesn't have car chases and thrilling escapes, but is actually more tense through its very nature that you keep expecting the worst to happen.This is the story of John Russell, an English journalist who has been living in Berlin for a number of years, and has a son by a German mother. It is the beginning of 1939, when things in Nazi Germany are beginning to get more difficult. John is torn between his loyalties to his native country, his loyalties to his son, and his loyalties to his adopted country, despite his hatred for the Nazi regime. He gets sucked into smuggling of papers and people, in an attempt to keep the people he loves safe and secure.This is the first in a series of books, the third of which is due to be published in 2009, so I will certainly be looking out for the second book which picks up chronologically where this books leaves off.
