- KurzbeschreibungBy 1939, Anglo-American journalist John Russell has spent over a decade in Berlin, where his son lives with his mother. He writes human-interest pieces for British and American papers, avoiding the investigative journalism that could get him deported. But as World War II approaches, he faces having to leave his son as well as his girlfriend of several years, a beautiful German starlet. When an acquaintance from his old communist days approaches him to do some work for the Soviets, Russell is reluctant, but he is unable to resist the offer. He becomes involved in other dangerous activities, helping a Jewish family and a determined young American reporter. When the British and the Nazis notice his involvement with the Soviets, Russell is dragged into the murky world of warring intelligence services.

- LeseprobeTHERE WERE TWO HOURS left of 1938. In Danzig it had been<br>snowing on and off all day, and a gang of children was enjoying a snowball<br>fight in front of the grain warehouses which lined the old waterfront.<br>John Russell paused to watch them for a few moments, then<br>walked on up the cobbled street toward the blue and yellow lights.<br>The Sweden Bar was far from crowded, and those few faces that<br>turned his way weren't exactly brimming over with festive spirit. In fact,<br>most of them looked like they'd rather be somewhere else.<br>It was an easy thing to want. The Christmas decorations hadn't<br>been removed, just allowed to drop, and they now formed part of the<br>flooring, along with patches of melting slush, floating cigarette butts,<br>and the odd broken bottle. The bar was famous for the savagery of its<br>international brawls, but on this particular night the various groups of<br>Swedes, Finns, and Letts seemed devoid of the energy needed to get<br>one started. Usually a table or two of German naval ratings could be<br>relied upon to provide the necessary spark, but the only Germans<br>present were a couple of aging prostitutes, and they were getting<br>ready to leave.<br>Russell took a stool at the bar, bought himself a Goldwasser, and<br>glanced through the month-old copy of the New York Herald Tribune<br>which, for some inexplicable reason, was lying there. One of his own<br>articles was in it, a piece on German attitudes to their pets. It was<br>accompanied by a cute-looking photograph of a Schnauzer.<br>Seeing him reading, a solitary Swede two stools down asked him, in<br>perfect English, if he spoke that language. Russell admitted that he did.<br>
