Book is exactly what I expected, educated, entertaining, and enticing. It was a great read, which was darker than his previous books, based upon the background. Very intriguing to learn about this time period in both the US and Germany. The characters are full, and the author tells the reader early, not to expect a Shindler or other hero to emerge, and you are drawn in even more.
