5.0 out of 5 stars 'Be careful what you wish for', 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best of Our Spies (Kindle Edition)
This gripping novel tracks how the ordinary aspirations of the main characters turn into nightmare scenarios as their initial naivety entraps them and they are used by the intelligence services in the distorted and brutal years of war, occupation and liberation. It had me on tenterhooks as I followed various stories to 1945 and beyond, my sympathies shifting as identities and motivations were revealed and all humans shown to be flawed. What is wished for comes to pass, but not in the format expected and the implicit questions of whether ends ever justify means or revenge punishments ever fit the crime are posed. This is a great read.
