This is a follow-on of Downing's Zoo Station set in 1941 Berlin and Central Europe. The plot thickens as British correspondent, John Russell, uncovers the Nazi "final solution" plans. The problem is how to get the information out to the Allies, and perhaps to get the US to do more than allowing American corporations make more money via Lend Lease and continue selling to the Axis through their German affiliates.
John is conflicted. He has lived in Germany for years, has a German ex-wife, son and a German girlfriend, Effi, who happens to be a successful and easliy recognized movies German star. John and Effi struggle against the all odds to get out of Germany before the Gestapo makes it impossible. Great drama, good description of central Europe under the Nazis and the dread of living in a police state.
Well written.

(The third book in the John Russell series)

This is the 3rd installment of John Russell's ongoing struggles. In this story he finds himself in an increasingly complicated situation. "In reality he had done nothing to help Nazi Germany and several things to impede it, but the number of people who could actually testify to that fact were decidedly thin on the ground. If all of them dropped dead before the war's end he would have some difficult explaining to do."

This story, while compelling, has been done and therefore seems boring. I kept hoping for something new, but the new parts seemed to be the teachy bits about who did what to whom and where. I found the low-key pace too slow to hold my interest and the characters never really came alive to me.
