Publisher's Summary

In the fall of 1940, the Nazis are at the height of their power. France is occupied, Britain is enduring the Blitz and is under threat of invasion, America is neutral, and Russia is in an uneasy alliance with Germany. Stephen Metcalfe, the younger son of a prominent American family, is a well-known man about town in occupied Paris. He's also a minor asset in the U.S.'s secret intelligence forces in Europe. Through a wild twist of fate, it falls to Metcalfe to instigate a bold plan that may be the only hope for what remains of the free world. Now he must travel to wartime Moscow to find, and possibly betray, a former lover, a fiery ballerina whose own loyalties are in question, in a delicate dance that could destroy all he loves and honors.

The Tristan Betrayal

Excellent from beginning to end. The depiction of the main character running from rooftop to rooftop in Paris and street to street and through the the Moscow subway system was breathtaking. I could picture every step and every jump. The love story was great and I was surprised at the ending. Just loved it.

If you like comic book characters, telegraphic moronic dialog, verbal filler, and an all too familiar plot, then this is your book. The only redeeming feature is the game attempt by the narrator to breath life into this turkey.
