In the bestselling tradition of The Scarlatti Inheritance and The Rheineman Exchange, a compelling thriller in which one man's actions can change the course of history.

In the fall of 1940, the Nazis are at the height of their power—France is occupied, Britain is enduring the Blitz and is under threat of invasion, America is neutral, and Russia is in an uneasy alliance with Germany. Stephen Metcalfe, the younger son of a prominent American family, is a well-known man about town in occupied Paris. He's also a minor asset in the U.S.'s secret intelligence forces in Europe. Through a wild twist of fate, it falls to Metcalfe to instigate a bold plan that may be the only hope for what remains of the free world. Now he must travel to wartime Moscow to find, and possibly betray, a former lover—a fiery ballerina whose own loyalties are in question—in a delicate dance that could destroy all he loves and honors.

Listener Opinions

    " I have always loved Robert Ludlum novels. This one was especially entertaining to me. Most of it was set in the early forties, prior to the time the US entered ww2. I really enjoyed the premise of the book and wonder if it really could have happened the way the author has portrayed it. "

    " Action, intrigue, and suspense are all good words to describe this book. Stephen Metcalfe is sent back to Russia undercover to undermine an attempt by hardcore Communists to take control of the country back into their own hands. There he meets the true love of his life from his first trip there, and she plays an important role in his duty. The book is written much in the same style as the Bourne series and is a good read. "

    " Definitely NOT by Ludlum, and maybe Lustbader was too greedy, but this impersonation is below all standards: clunky plot, no style, stay away. "

    " Although this book was only written in 2003, it feels dated. The story follows Stephen Metcalfe, a young American playboy thrown in to the world of European espionage prior to the US's entry in WW2. Metcalfe flips between Paris, Moscow, and Berlin in an attempt to find secrets, love, and possibly start (and conversely stop) a war. Interspersed throughout the book are flash forwards to an older Metcalfe who is helping to broker a deal to bring a resolution to the Cold War. Maybe its just that I have read a lot of these WW2 spy novels, but I was not overly impressed. However, it is a good airplane read. "
