Spanning from London and Berlin 1945 through Washington DC in 1960 to Berlin in 1980, Carroll has written a good Cold War intrigue tale spiced with the complicated family dynamics that being the son of a CIA officer might bring. Something that Carroll is familiar with as he is the son of a US intelligence officer himself.

A hell of a story! A man of honor, and a woman of passion in a labyrinth of love, loyalty and lies.

400 pages. The front cover states: "A man of honor and a woman of passion in a labyrinth of love, loyalty and lies. Jake McKay, growing up in the shadow of his distinguished CIA father, stumbled on a secret that threatened his love and respect for the man he had always revered. Magda Dettke's seductive beauty was both her power and peril, and she lived a lie that, if revealed, would mean something far grimmer than disgrace. One would do aything to discover the truth. The other, anything to mask it."
