NEW YORK TIMESBerlin, February 1933.John Russell watches the Reichstag burn, but it's no scoop, even for a crime reporter. Four weeks after Hitler's accession, brownshirt mobs stalk the streets and the press prints what the Party tells it.

The atmosphere of espionage is wonderfully conveyed.'THE TIMES'An extraordinary evocation of Nazi Germany' C.J.
