Two Lives, One Russia Reviews
This gem of a book is a spy story, a detective mystery, a personal memoir and the history of a family spanning nearly two centuries. Nicholas Daniloff was finishing a five year tour as U. S. News and World Report’s bureau chief in 1986 Moscow, when he was kidnapped by the KGB, thrown into prison and charged with being a spy for the United States.
Keep in mind, that I am a complete Russophile. I studied Russian for two years, spent months in Russia in the 90s. So this book touches me in ways that are personal. I read this book every few years, and I'm starting to think my original copy is wearing thin.
