This review is by John C. Campbell.
Not the usual book by the usual Moscow correspondent. Daniloff’s plot shifts the scene back and forth between his search for his ancestral heritage (his great-great-grandfather was a Russian officer involved in the Decembrist revolt of 1825) and his own harrowing experience when arrested as an alleged American spy in 1986. The book has appeal as a personal story and in the process tells a great deal about Russia and the Russians.
