Sevastopol, 1942. As the might of the German army threatens to engulf the Soviet Union, a brave, young Red Army sniper named Tat’yana Levchenko becomes a national hero. But who is this beautiful assassin? To the Soviets, she is a refined poet and weapon of destruction with 300 enemy kills to her name—a dedicated soldier whose skill and courage have rallied a motherland on the brink of despair. To the Americans, she is a Red Communist with movie-star good looks who is championed by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt—a reminder of Soviet suffering and a symbol of the vital need to defeat the Nazis.

Invited to the United States at the behest of the White House, Tat’yana sets off on a whirlwind tour with the first lady. Amid the curious crowds, rumors begin to swirl that Tat’yana is a spy, a pawn of politicians and propagandists battling for power and control. But before suspicions can be confirmed, the Soviet soldier vanishes. It will be more than fifty years before a resourceful correspondent uncovers the truth, and the full story of the beautiful assassin is finally told.

    " yeah, yeah, she's a beautiful mommy WWII sniper. The opening parry between her and a Nazi sniper over several days was great. Then, blech. Didn't finish it. "

    " Good book, well written with many interesting characters. The ending was a bit hurried and not as well executed as I had hoped, but nonetheless an interesting book on the relationship of the U.S. and the Soviets. "
