I borrowed this book under a misapprehension. I thought it was about Julia Child and her husband's wartime service. Unfortunately the bulk of the book is about 'misunderstood' Soviet spies (who were all innocent, of course), 'Reds' under beds à la McCarthy and how dreadful it was to be a communist in the USA in the 1950s. The book might be of interest to devotees of 1950s coldwar spycraft but it's my guess that the Child angle has been deliberately puffed up to cash in on her current popularity. The text reader has tried her best to bring this lengthy, rambling and mislabelled book to life but, overall, I would rate it as not worth the effort.
