This audiobook demonstrates yet again that history's footnotes often have the most revealing and important stories to tell. Narrated in a perfect tone and mix of emotions by Lisa Flanagan, the work focuses on how a German agent, a prominent American's wife, and Mussolini's daughter, Edda Ciano, worked to transfer the diaries of Edda's husband, Italian Foreign Minister Galeazzo Ciano, to the Allies in order to document Nazi atrocities at Nuremberg. The story--which includes espionage, romance, counterintelligence, and more--reads like the best spy novels. Flanagan's performance is flawless, particularly her delivery of dialogue and discussions of how various politicos maneuvered against great odds to obtain Ciano's important diaries. D.J.S.
