Voices Under Berlin: The Tale of a Monterey Mary
The novel is set against the backdrop of the Berlin Spy Tunnel during the mid-1950s, before the Berlin Wall. The yarn is told from both ends of the tunnel. One end is the story of the Americans who worked the tunnel, and how they fought for a sense of purpose against boredom and the enemy both within and without. This side of the story is told with a pace and a black humor reminiscent of that used by Joseph Heller (Catch-22) and Richard Hooker (M A S H ). The other end of the tunnel is the story of the Russians whose telephone calls the Americans are intercepting. They are the voices under Berlin.
