A bit of a spooky spy thriller centered around the Stalin era, an innocent abroad. A historian interested in the soviet politics and working of the Russian empire. The perfect person to become a spy whilst living in England, and attending college there. This novel captures the life and times of Russia in the cold war, soviet espionage at its best.

Well written. However, I thought that the spy focus was too domineering and not interesting enough in itself. More about other new time experiences - for foreigners - would have added to the enjoyment of reading the memoirs of the author as a young student in Moscow.

Oh dear. Very disappointed. I really don't know what direction Sheila is heading with this book. Quarter was through I gave up. Its gathering dust now I am afraid.
