    " Tension picks up here in volume 2 of the Balkan Trilogy, as the war becomes a more direct presence in Bucharest, as do the fascists. The plot still progresses rather slowly. However, I do recommend this well-written, character- and location-driven novel. "

    " Book 2 is as consistent as the first volume. In Book 2, the Germans have begun arriving in Bucharest. The Pringles are split up, she goes to Athens while Guy remains in Romania. But the Romanian police cancelled Harriet's return visa. What is to be done? "
