In this true-life thriller, Kati Marton draws on her skill as an investigative reporter to discover who her journalist parents really were—and how they survived the Nazis in Budapest and imprisonment by the Soviets during the Cold War.

Award-winning journalist Kati Marton set out on a wrenching personal journey to uncover the truth about her parents during her childhood in Cold War Budapest. She exposes the cruel mechanics of the communist state using the secret police files on her parents as well as dozens of interviews that reveal how her family was spied on and betrayed by friends, colleagues, and even their children’s babysitter. She learned details of her parents’ love affairs and the full nightmare of her parents’ incarceration in a communist prison. Marton relates her own eyewitness account of her mother’s and father’s arrests and the terrible separation that followed. There were things she didn’t want to know about and disappointments she didn’t want to revisit. But as she dug deeper into their lives, she found the truth about her parents’ lives—and her own.

    " This reads like fiction, but knowing it's true made it all the more impressive. Kati Marton is a wonderful writer and lets the story unfold. It's amazing how strong the parents were, refusing to be silenced. I can't imagine how she felt when she found her childhood drawings in the secret files! "

    " Excellent follow-on to The Great Escape. A fascinating story of Marton's parents, who were Hungarian AP and UPI correspondents during the post-WWII era of communist occupation. Marton was married to Peter Jennings and is now married to Richard Holbrooke. "

    " I loved the book mostly bec Kati Marton and I have so much background stuff in common (not to mention maiden names!). "

    " I thought the book was written well and interesting, but it just wasn't very gripping. "
