From Amazon:

November 1989. Communism is collapsing, and soon the Berlin Wall will come down with it. But before that happens there is one last bit of cloak & dagger to attend to. Two weeks ago, an undercover MI6 officer was killed in Berlin. He was carrying information from a source in the East — a list that allegedly contains the name of every espionage agent working in Berlin, on all sides. No list was found on his body. Now Lorraine Broughton, an experienced spy with no pre-existing ties to Berlin, has been sent into this powderkeg of social unrest, counter-espionage, defections gone bad and secret assassinations to bring back the list and save the lives of the British agents whose identities reside on it.

On the next episode we’ll be reading Star Power, by Michael Terracciano and Garth Graham.

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti and Tobiah Panshin.

Thank you to Addison Appleby, Kar Fedosh, Chris Bianculli, Shopping Mall Krampus, Jeb Korzilius, and Jeremy Ballard for sponsoring the show.

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Umbral, Vol. 1 & 2, by Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten. Umbral is a fantasy story starring a young thief named Rascal, who has befriended the young prince of her native kingdom.

Things take a turn for the worse, however, when on the day of an eclipse the Umbral—a race of shapeshiting shadow monsters—return, slaughter the royal family, and take their place. Rascal finds herself on the run from the Umbral, along with a shifty (and possibly immortal) wizard, a smuggler, and a drunken scholar.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated The Royals: Masters of War, Princeless, Nimona, and Birthright for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is The Royals: Masters of War.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Brant Gillihan-Eddy.

In volume 1 we follow police detectives Dietrich and Klem as they investigate a pair of murders that seem to lead straight to the office of the mayor himself.
