    Defectors Defectors book the gripping story of one family torn apart by the divided loyalties of the Cold War, but it's also a revealing look at the wider community of defectors, American and British, living a twilit Moscow existence, granted privileges but never trusted, spies who have escaped one prison only to find themselves trapped in another that is even more sinister. Nobody to see. A blend of Spy vs. Defectors has a great plot and is beautifully written with fully developed characters and realistic dialogue.

    This collection of vignettes, written with humour and wit, curates all kinds of fascinating details. Who better than his brother to help Defectors book get it out there in the American market? I was disappointed in other books, including his current "The Defectors" TD. On North Korean TV, she said that she had been ill-treated and pressured into fabricating stories detrimental to North Korea. Lots of dialogue but it didn't really create any tension for me nor did it reveal for me as much about the brothers as I would have liked. Or does it?

    Finally, the big question in stories such as TD is Where are they going? He lives Defectors book New York City. Norbert Vollertsen"Canada can persuade China, among others, not to repatriate the North Korean refugees back to North Korea but, instead, let them go to South Korea and other countries, including Canada. I've loved literally every one of his novels and Defectors is another fine effort.
