In July 1939 Russell returns to Berlin as the newly-appointed Central European correspondent of an American newspaper. With his communist past, German son and English-American parentage he's the perfect catch for any of Europe's warring espionage services, and none will take no for an answer. Through the long Berlin summer, through trips to Prague, Warsaw and Moscow tracking Europe's descent into war, Russell seeks to satisfy his secret masters, protect his girlfriend Effi and his son Paul, and retain some sense of his fragile integrity. And if this wasn't difficult enough, a friend needs his help in finding the missing Jewish niece of an employee. With a whole continent headed for self-immolation, saving just one person shouldn't be so difficult... Further praise for Zoo Station: "Excellent... A complex and edge-of-the-seat thriller... Robert Harris and Fatherland mixed with a dash of le Carre" Publishing News "Ranks with Alan Furst for authentic pre-war detail and atmosphere... Berlin in the build-up to war is evoked with all its fearsome undercurrents..." Donald James, author of Monstrum "A wonderfully drawn spy novel. [An] auspicious debut, with more to come" Bookseller David Downing is the author of a political thriller, two alternative histories and a number of books on military and political history and other subjects as diverse as Neil Young and Russian football. FANS OF ALAN FURST, JOHN LE CARRE, ROBERT HARRIS, C.J. SANSOM, KEN FOLLETT Praise for Zoo Station: "An extraordinary evocation of Nazi Germany on the eve of war, the smell of cruelty seeping through the clean modern surface." C.J. Sansom author of Winter in Madrid
