did not like it

Very poorly edited. Chapter 5 has the sudden appearance of a main character who wasn't previously in the scene, but everyone acted like he'd always been there. There were also typos (maybe only in the kindle edition?)

The book was authentic to the time, even being subtly anti-semitic (describing someone who was Jewish as dark, like another character, but "sallow"--ding, ding!) Subtle, because the characters were supposedly going to clear thefts by Germans during WWII. Less subtle since the British Jew betrayed a British member of the resistance? In cahoots with some French Jew? Never explained how or why that would've happened.

Disappointing since it wasn't a bad series, and seemed like it was going to get into Cold War antics.
