There’s plenty of talk of summer reading lists as the days grow warmer and longer, but this time, I’m suggesting you add a whole series to your stack. Start with David Downing‘s Zoo Station and make your way through the adventures of Anglo-American journalist/author/spy John Russell, then grab Downing’s newest, Lehrter Station.
This series is best enjoyed from the beginning, and historical suspense fans will agree with Whodunit columnist Bruce Tierney, who insists “Downing’s deft weaving of fiction and real-life WWII history is second to none.”
We chatted with Downing about the fifth installment in the story of John Russell, and I loved his answer to this question: “If you could travel back in time to any decade, where would you go and what would you do while you were there?” Read his answer.
Will Lehrter Station make your summer reading list?
