Robert Whitfield superbly performs this exciting spy novel whose action takes place in post-Cold War Europe. The plot centers around a woman's expedition to destroy an ex-East German secret police official who years ago murdered her lover, a young agent. But on an even more interesting level, the book portrays the struggle of Joshua Mantel, the woman's aging and seedy partner in her mission, to overcome his self-loathing over a past "compromise" of his own in the amoral world of espionage. Whitfield's subtle shadings of tone, cadence, and inflection artistically reveal the rich subtleties that Gerald Seymour has woven into this fine book. K.C.
