About the Book
It’s 1945, and John Russell, A British journalist, has finally reunited with his German girlfriend Effi in London after a dangerous flight from war-torn Berlin. But Russell soon realizes his comfortable new life in England isn’t going to last when he’s tracked down by Soviet agent Shchepkin, who helped Russell escape the disastrous last days of the war and the Russian army’s destruction of Berlin. The time has come to repay that war-time debt, and Shchepkin’s bosses in Moscow are not the forgiving types. Russell has no choice but to agree to be transferred back to Germany, where he will resume his cover as an investigative journalist and hand over US intelligence reports on the German Communist Party.
Meanwhile, Effi struggles to revive her acting career, but she can’t fight the desire to expose ex-Nazi Party members still at large in Berlin. In this dangerous new world where alliances change every day, will John and Effi be able to leave the past behind? Or are the new enemies the same as the old?
