From the archives of WWII comes this spy story as engaging as any novel. Fritz Kolbe, a worker in the German foreign ministry, used his diplomatic missions between Berlin and Switzerland to pass important war information to American agents. The constant threat of discovery by the Gestapo put him in mortal danger. Michael Prichard botches the few Spanish words in the text but does much better with the German. His brisk pace keeps abundant details from slowing the story, and his clear, distinct voice makes the narration easy to understand. The combination of a reader known for skill at nonfiction and the fascinating elements of Kolbe's deceptions creates an inspirational nugget of U.S. history.
