A breathtaking tale of love, loyalty, and intrigue set in the early days of World War II from the acclaimed author of Soul Catcher
World War II seems lost for the beleaguered Soviets as they struggle to hold back the rising German tide at Sevastopol. But a fearless female sniper inspires hope during her nation's darkest hour. Word of the extraordinary Soviet heroine, Tat'yana Levchenko, reaches American First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, who invites the beautiful assassin to tour the United States with her. For the Russians, Tat'yana's visit is an opportunity to gain support and valuable U.S. intelligence. But Tat'yana knows she is a pawn in a deadly game of treachery and deceit, forced to question the motivations of everyone around her . . . even the dashing and sympathetic American captain assigned as her translator. And then, as suddenly as she rose to international fame, Tat'yana vanishes without a trace.
Her strange disappearance will remain a mystery for decades—until a determined journalist stumbles across Tat'yana's story . . . and uncovers the astonishing truth.

This engrossing story opens and closes with the voice of a sophisticated British journalist--as portrayed by Anne Flosnik. But Flosnik's remarkable adroitness with accents soon causes the listener to forget any character other than Tat'yana Levchenko, a stalwart Soviet recruited to join Eleanor Roosevelt on a promotional tour of America--and coerced into pressing the first lady for confidential information. The subtleties of Tat'yana's voice are extremely convincing as she grieves for her lost little daughter, as she falls in love with an American translator, and as she tells her story to the canny journalist many years later. The Roosevelts' upper-crust tones are also believable. Tat'yana's story is haunting, and Flosnik delivers. B.V.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
