Summary
"Alexsi Ivanovich Smirnov, an orphan and a thief, has been living by his wits and surviving below the ever-watchful eye of the Soviet system until his luck finally runs out. In 1936, at the age of 16, Alexsi is caught by the NKVD and transported to Moscow. There, in the notorious headquarters of the secret police, he is given a choice: be trained and inserted as a spy into Nazi Germany under the identity of his best friend, the long lost nephew of a high ranking Nazi official, or disappear forever in the basement of the Lubyanka. For Alexsi, it's the moment of truth; for the rest of the world, the future is at stake"--
Summary
This World War II-era tale of double-crossing follows an Azerbaijani thief who became a spy on pain of death. Trained by Soviet intelligence, he's sent undercover into Nazi Germany, where he joins the intelligence service and is tasked with pulling off a stunning assassination. Inspired by the theoretical assassination of Stalin, Roosevelt, and Churchill, lots of historical detail and a complex protagonist who just wants to save his own skin characterize A Single Spy. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
