There are three disparate plot lines running through this book, meaning the author did a lot of jumping around between various people and places. It made for a confusing read at first. For about the first half of the book, I seriously doubted that any of these stories would link up with each other, but eventually they did. I did learn a bit about germ warfare and cigar bomb tactics used during the First World War, but the presentation of the overall story was choppy and disjointed. I enjoyed Blum's book "The Last Goodnight" about the spy Betty Pack, but sadly this book missed the mark for me.
