Its a long intricate read that will consume much of your time and involve you personally for hours upon hours... its an excellent historical fiction with a true historical backround and setting, tied in with a suspensful and exciting plot. If you want to learn a thing or two about the nazi party and the espionage/ stories about their spies and tales like that, this is the perfect book to start with.
