REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
I’m not sure I’ve ever read a World War II story at least partially about Jews on the run that I would classify as an action adventure romance, and I have to say while taking on a serious topic, this one was quite a bit of… fun. Somehow Martin Cruz Smith manages to successfully impart historical information in a compelling, plot driven thriller not unlike the modern political sort. Doesn’t make any sense? Try it yourself.
