First of all, I’m a huge fan of historical fiction, but the cover is t what you’d immediately think of for the HF genre. I honestly thought it was a true crime thriller. But the first few chapters really gripped me and I sincerely hope this book evolves into a historical spy thriller. And taking place immediately after WW2, (maybe) carrying on to the Cold War— I honestly don’t see a lot of those and I hope this timely novel delivers. The writing flows, giving apt description without over sharing and while keeping a clipped pace. Also, it doesn’t get mired down in the details that some historical novels do— I feel like some tend to over describe how the characters look and dress. The fact that this excerpt doesn’t do that makes me excited to see how exactly this story turns out. I also think that the subject matter can be very relevant to today— Russia’s invasion of Ukraine
