Fantastic spy thriller

Another great Ridpath novel. This one is an exciting trip through the changing times leading to WWII in both Paris and Berlin. Ridpath’s ability to tell the story with vivid details makes you appreciate the complexities of the period with historical context. It switches between 1920’s and 1970’s with ease from characters you feel to you have gotten to know well. A suspenseful road trip of a young man and his granny sharing the story of her past was far from typical. Twists and surprises in every chapter make it an exciting thriller to the last page.
