  • This thriller about a British journalist working within Russia who suddenly becomes an enemy of the state for asking the wrong questions is muted and ambiguous, less pat than many of Garve s plots It raises the issue of how to judge someone who has been loyal to a totalitarian state, and remains ambivalent As a result, I am ambivalent which, of course, isn t necessarily a bad thing.


  • I enjoyed this story about intrigue in Russia Lord Tim Quainton is a British correspondent to Russia He falls in love w a beautiful girl, but finds that her father may have been involved in a Russian spy ring His fiancee cannot marry Tim he resolves his suspicions about her father He has an assignment in Russia, and he is thrust into a fight for his very life An exciting story to the end.
