Resenhas

Cold war spy novel that works on many levels, and is interesting on all of them. The way in which the story is told is unusual: a collection of reports, transcripts, and other materials presumably drawn from the files of an espionage agency. The characters are compellingly drawn, yet ambiguous -- who is working for who? And the morality of the whole enterprise becomes an issue. Great read.
