A taut, tense masterclass in espionage fiction from the author of The Best of Our Spies and The Swiss Spy, the new novel by Alex Gerlis takes place in a fiercely pro-Nazi city in the final months of the Second World War - a place where the Wehrmacht patrol the streets and the Gestapo rule unchecked. As the former Austrian capital faces the onslaught of the Allies from one side and the Red Army from the other, it provides an unforgettable backdrop to a chess-like game of oneupmanship and political ideology.

This was an awful book...
Having LOVED the Best of Our Spies, I started this book with excited anticipation.. what a dreadful disappointment.. the story was so far fetched, the characters so ridiculous and the narration with intonation in all the wrong places.
One final point: the narrator use the term “Jew” in a pejorative way, which I found quite insulting.
