    This was a gripping story, told somewhat simplistically. Based on a real-life WWII espionage case, the book portrays a German man who avoids the nationalistic frenzy of the Third Reich. Fritz Kolbe is depicted as a man for whom the ties of family and friendship transcend social pressures to conform. He is an unlikely hero, one whose company I enjoyed. Still, it felt a bit as if I were being led along and educated as I read. I was given a Netgalle...

    Dieser Kriminalroman enthält eine Spionagegeschichte und ist zugleich ein Historischer Roman mit biografischen Elementen. Es ist die Würdigung eines äusserlich unscheinbaren aber mutigen Mannes mit hohen ethischen Prinzipien der sein Leben riskiert hat, um dem Wahnsinn des 2. Weltkriegs ein möglichst frühes Ende zu setzen oder zumindest dem herrschenden Regime der Nazis Sand in die gut geölte Kriegsmaschinerie zu streuen. Mit der Weitergabe...

    Wow!I could not put this book down! I could not help wondering how someone could do all of the things Fritz Kolbe did. He was a hero in his own right with the bravery and fortitude that he exhibited standing up to the Na,I Regime.

    ExcellentWell written. Full of intrigue. A love story. Most of all, a story about doing what's right despite the danger. The true story of a German spy who took great risks to make a difference in WWII.

    Very interesting storyVery well do about a German diplomat that risked so much because of his hatred of the Nazi's and Hitler. The book chronicles how he was able to smuggle vital secret German documents to US intelligence.

    Started this on kindle on 3rd October 2017. Based on a true story of Fritz Kolbe, a German, a widowed civil servant in Adolf Hitler’s foreign office. We know that he survives the war as he is relating the details, but at such an emotional cost and sheer terror of being a spy in Nazi Berlin one cannot imagine. The writer works hard at giving us insight to his everyday horrors.

    Fritz Kolbe, the most important spy in NS-Germany delivered top-secret information to the Americans in Switzerland, risking his life!A thrilling close-up look into the insane world of Berlin under Nazi-Regime, the absurdity of the situation, the horrors and how life and love finds a way to survive in such terrible times.Brilliantly told and a real page-turner that also touches the heart.Recommended!

    zuviel erwartet - damit möchte ich es zusammenfassen - wer sich vorher informiert, weiß, dass es keine klassische Spionage-Geschichte ist - die wechselnden Perspektiven und der für mich verwirrende Aufbau der Geschichte, die vielen losen Enden, sind einfach nichts für mich
