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.
