A tale of an unlikely friendship bent on a seemingly impossible task performed to gain their freedom. We are in the Siege of Leningrad, the city is starving and our two heroes must find a dozen eggs so the NKUD colonel can have a cake for his daughter’s wedding. The whole thing smacks of disaster right from the start. Tender, violent, tense and laced with humour, our two delightful renegades blunder their way through one adventure after another. A lovely book, highly recommended.Comparison: Francis Cottram, Bernhard Schlink, Tom Rob Smith
