Good book, something Alan Furst fans could savor. Well-developed characters and increasing tension. I was a little disappointed in the ending, however, in that it was like the Saturday Matinees I used to go to as a kid where the good guy was always left in a dire situation and you had to come back the following Saturday to see how things were resolved. (And then, of course, the hero was always left in deep doo-doo again and again and . . . .) In the case of Stettin Station, I guess I won't really find out how things were concluded until I read the next book in the series. Not a fan of that. I think each novel should stand alone.

In November 1941 in Berlin, Anglo-American journalist John Russell knows Roosevelt needs an excuse to enter the war as the German armies blitzkrieg towards Moscow. To avoid censorship or worse, Russell is very careful with what he files as he knows it will take little for the Nazis to detain, kill or export him. This would leave his famous girlfriend actress Effi Koenen behind still filming propaganda movies for the Nazis' whom she and John loath and he also would be unable to help his teenage son Paul, who lives with his former wife while belonging to the Hitler Youth group. Meanwhile as most Berliners blindly remain loyal to the Nazis, John's Communist friends report the transporting by trains of Jews to the east. Admiral Canaris, head of Abwehr, assigns John on a mission in Prague with a promise of a passage to Switzerland. However, the mission fails, but John tries to send to his contacts that American companies in Europe are profiteering from the war by selling Zyklon B gas to the Nazis. The third Russell WWII espionage thriller (see Zoo Station and Silesian Station) is a great entry that in many ways is more a superb historical as David Downing captures the essence of Berlin just prior to the American entry into the war. The atmosphere is terrific as the Nazis deploy the Final Solution and attack the Russians while Russell struggles with getting himself and his renowned girlfriend to safety yet not wanting to abandon his son to the Hitler Group nor ignore the sales of poison gas. Readers will feel they are in Berlin in late 1941 as Stettin Station is a timely tale. Harriet Klausner

In the vein of Alan Furst, you feel like you are in Europe during WWII. Unique perspective of American/British writer who considers Berlin home.

Downing maintains the tension in book 3 of the series. Descriptions of the period paint a vivid picture.
