Good story of a young woman escaping from Czechoslovakia and the KGB. Pretty fast paced and tense because you can never tell who is a friend and who is an enemy. Also a little bit of romance between Irina and one of her rescuers. I don't know what year this was written but it was before everyone had cell phones. I'd forgotten what it was like to have to find a pay phone to call someone and hope you could reach them. Very fast,easy,enjoyable reading.
