Review quote

"With its convincingly treacherous cast of turncoats, opportunists, party hacks, and rogue Russians, The Bridge of Sighs is a richly atmospheric tale of one man's Quixotic struggle to decipher the bleack enigma of postwar Eastern Europe. The intriguing young inspector Brod is a character to remember."
