So much to love about this twisty, complex spy novel about two American sisters caught up in intrigue, love and war during the end of WWII and the beginning of the Cold War. Williams' strong grasp of character among Foreign Service employees, brings palpable ethos & possible understanding to drinking excesses among those deemed with knowing and carrying out sometimes intractable diplomatic missions, all-the-while having family members having to pick up the pieces of broken hopes and dreams. A page-turning wonder, this is historical spy fiction at its best. - Reviewed by Maureen
