Zoo Station By David Downing. Review.
Zoo Station by David Downing is book 1 in the John Russell series .
The story is told in the run up to the war. It is 1939 and John Russell is in Berlin working as a news reporter for American and British papers. There are big changes happening there now and it is a worrying time for anyone who Hitler would disapprove off. John has a child and a girlfriend living there and I did feel sorry for them as he put himself in risky situations. I got a real sense of how tense it would have been living there at that time when war about to break out at any minute. John was a very brave character and you are rooting for him all the time. He is a good guy trying to make the best of a bad situation. The story flows steady throughout and finishes in a breath taking ending. Very satisfying! I would read more from this author after reading this book.
I received this book from the kind folks over at Lovereading.co.uk and you can see this book there if you follow the link below.
This book has already been released and if you enjoyed this you may want to check out David's latest book in the series, book 6 , Masaryk Station which is due to be released Mid January 2014.

A free excerpt is available for both these books. Yay!!!
