[ARCHIVED] Zoo Station

Zoo Station

"The clever denouement will have readers clamoring for a sequel."-- BookPage " Zoo Station is a beautifully crafted and compelling thriller with a heart-stopping ending as John Russell learns the personal faces of good and evil. An unforgettable read."--Charles Todd, author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge Series "A finely drawn portrait of the capital of a nation marching in step toward disaster."-- St. Louis Post-Dispatch "[A] smooth, scary wartime thriller drenched in period atmosphere."-- Kirkus Reviews "[A] suspenseful tale of an ordinary man living in a dangerous place during a dangerous time who finds within himself the strength to do heroic acts."-- Booklist "If you like your tales spiced with morally ambiguous characters right out of Graham Greene, this is a train you need to be aboard. . . . A marvelous return to cerebral espionage."-- January Magazine By 1939, Anglo-American journalist John Russell has spent fifteen years in Berlin, where his German-born son lives. He writes human-interest pieces for British and American papers, avoiding the investigative journalism that could get him deported. But as war approaches, he faces the prospect of having to leave his son and his longtime girlfriend. Then, an acquaintance from his communist days approaches him to do some work for the Soviets. Russell is reluctant but ultimately unable to resist. He becomes involved in other dangerous activities, helping a Jewish family and an idealistic American reporter. When the British and the Nazis notice his involvement with the Soviets, Russell is dragged into the world of warring intelligence services.
