"Caleb Farley is the youngest man ever to show up at Mrs. Duke's cabins, a ramshackle desert retreat in Nevada--one of the only places to secure a quick divorce in 1950s America. But the other men, there to shed the lives and wives they've known and begin anew, quickly begin to suspect Caleb may be hiding more than just a broken heart. In a time of heightened fears and political distrust, this boy's presence is set to test each man's loyalty--to country and to one another."--Publisher's description

The minute she crosses that line first, it'll be like the whole world has changed for us, you might want to think about that a little before it happens.

New voters queue in their thousands, but a senior member of the observation team finds herself both horrified by the president's suppressive tactics and, for once, in a position to do something about it.

Bridge of Spies - Der Unterhändler( Visual )

4 editions published in 2016 in German and Undetermined and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Auf dem Höhepunkt des Kalten Kriegs wird im Jahr 1957 in New York ein russischer Spion enttarnt. Vor Gericht wird ihm ein unerfahrener Pflichtverteidiger zur Seite gestellt, der sich als so hartnäckig und versiert erweist, dass er mit einer heiklen Mission beauftragt wird: Er soll mit den Sowjets einen Austausch des Gefangenen gegen den abgeschossenen U2-Piloten Gary Powers zuwege bringen. Darstellerisch wie technisch virtuos gestaltetes Drama mit unverkennbaren gedanklichen Parallelen zur US-amerikanischen Befindlichkeit nach den 9/11-Anschlägen. Die an klassischen Vorbildern orientierte Erzählweise der kunstvollen ersten Hälfte erinnert an einen "Film Noir", in dem die Prinzipien der Demokratie gegen Hysterie und Voreingenommenheit abgewogen werden, während die zweite Hälfte eher als Spionagedrama à la John Le Carré funktioniert."
