FTC Compliance Statement: I received a free, time-limited, electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley.com in exchange for my honest review, which is provided below. I have not been compensated for this review and my opinion is my own.
I read Joseph Kanon's Alibi at the end of last year and enjoyed it, so when I saw this opportunity on NetGalley I leapt at the chance to read more by the same author.
This book paints a detailed, heartbreaking picture of Cold War Berlin. The story is relentless; it's like a slowly coiling noose tightening around the main character's neck. This was a gripping thriller. Recommended.
