Excellent book! It is worth viewing the accompanying movie and note the differences. While the book focuses on Linda Voss' life before her "spy stint in Berlin", the movie primarily recounts and embellishes her spy journeys.

I picked this book because I had seen the movie several years ago. the book is much different! I was disappointed at first but then understood how the Hollywood filmmakers changed the story (and left out very important events relating to the main character) in order to make a "good" movie. While I wish the two had been more compatible I am still glad that I read the book.
