The Woman from Bratislava

by Leif Davidsen

This fast paced thriller charts one Danish family's involvement in Eastern Europe from 1941 to 1999. Highly recommended both for those who like classic espionage stories and fans of the great crime novels coming out of Scandinavia in the 21st century.


Samson laughed. A high-pitched little laugh:
'Everybody and anybody. Prague. Bratislava. Budapest. This part of the world is a real hotbed of spies. Like something out of a novel by Eric Ambler. There's a real feel of the thirties about Central Europe today .... Everybody is out to make a killing, but a lot of them want to get out of the game before it's too late. Ten years after the Wall came down we still have people with one foot in the old camp and the other in NATO and the EU.'
