Summary:

"State Security Officer Brano Sev is the secretive member of the Ministry for State Security. No one else quite trusts him, but it is part of his job to do what the authorities ask, no matter what. So when he gets an order to travel to the village of his birth in order to interrogate a potential defector, he goes. When a man turns up dead shortly after he arrives and Brano is framed for the murder, he assumes this is part of the plan and allows it to run its course. But when the plan leads him into exile in Vienna, he finally begins to ask questions. In fact, Comrade Brano Sev learns that loyalty to the cause might be the biggest crime of all.

    This reminded me of the type of books I read during the 1950's and 60's. It is a cold war novel that gives a good travel guide to Vienna. The reader was great and made it so easy to listen to. I kept trying to figure out which country Yalta Blvd was in. Fast pace story. I listened on my MP3 player during my daily walk. The book was good company to start the day.
