The book is very interesting. It depicts the people trying to survive after WWII and the occupation of both the USA and USSR. The writing depicting this period is much better than any movie I've seen showing this period. Additionally, the perspective is unique, because it is not the story of GIs in post war Germany.
The plot is very good and never got boring (espionage). It was realistic in that bad things happened to 'good' characters...
What makes this a great book is the setting, the characters, and author's depth of knowledge of the period and expressing the subtleties in his writing. I read this book before March of Violets (March of Violets is set in 1936). Each book stands on it's own and I would say I liked this book better.

There is no current writer who comes close to Kerr in evoking an historical period - and to telling a great story with vivid characters and delightful plot twists - read this book, or better listen to it. It's one of the best.
