Further adventures of the noir-ish Jack Teller as he battles through besieged West Berlin at the end of World War II, where Teller has been summoned for...what, exactly? Is the STAASI Colonel for real? Is there really a high level assassination plot? Who's the target? And why should Berlin-born Teller care? You'll peel away layers of history and deceit as you arrive at the denouement. A satisfying read, not as good as the first Teller novel, and I wish the author would give up the use of caps when things get exciting. It's a 3+.
