Nicola Barber and Cassandra Campbell share the narration of this spy story set primarily during the Cold War. Twins Iris and Ruth have not spoken in years, not since Iris and her family defected to Russia when her husband was revealed to be a Soviet mole. In 1952, Ruth agrees to travel to Moscow with a U.S. diplomat to try to extract her sister from the USSR. Barber performs the chapters about Iris in a soft, expressive voice, conveying Iris's resignation to a difficult marriage and a life that seems out of her control. Campbell's lively delivery of Ruth's chapters fits the twin's sassier, stronger personality. Both narrators employ believable British and Russian accents and vary their deliveries to fit the mood and action of the story. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
