Review Text

In this peculiar novel, the exiles are refugees from Nazi invasion during World War II and most have joined over-and-underground retaliatory efforts. In particular one Rudi Caron who leads a resistance movement back to his puritanical wife and Captain Alex von Weber who has left his at home but finds solace elsewhere-". . . oh! Oh my beloved, or my lord and master, I am yours, do with me what you will. Show me no mercy, crush me, put me to your sword. Do not relent. Be cruel to me. Kill me. Make me die, die, DIE. . . ." Oh brother! Alex's wife turns collaborator. . . could you blame her? (Kirkus Reviews)show more
