Zoo Station by David Downing
A John Russell Mystery
This title introduces American journalist John Russell, living in pre-World War II Berlin. There are currently four books in the series, and we've had the pleasure of reading and reviewing all of them, intricately crafted fictional mysteries within the context of an all-too-real historical period.
About Zoo Station (from the publisher): By 1939, Anglo-American journalist John Russell has spent over a decade in Berlin, where his son lives with his mother. He writes human-interest pieces for British and American papers, avoiding the investigative journalism that could get him deported. But as World War II approaches, he faces having to leave his son as well as his girlfriend of several years, a beautiful German starlet.
When an acquaintance from his old communist days approaches him to do some work for the Soviets, Russell is reluctant, but he is unable to resist the offer. He becomes involved in other dangerous activities, helping a Jewish family and a determined young American reporter. When the British and the Nazis notice his involvement with the Soviets, Russell is dragged into the murky world of warring intelligence services.
