Nocturne for the General
by John Trenhaile
Publisher: Congdon & Weed, Inc.
Copyright 1985
Book Club Edition

With his first two espionage thrillers, The Man Called Kyril and A View from the Square, John Trenhaile established himself as a dazzling new talent.  Nocturne for the General is his best book yet.

At its center is Stepan Povin, once chief of foreign intelligence for the KGB, now prisoner in a camp at the northernmost tip of Russia.  Povin is a traitor:  Early in his KGB career he was converted by Russian Christians he had been sent to persecute, and influenced by his new faith, he worked with the West whenever Soviet ambitions veered out of control.  But Povin has not been shot for his treason, because he unknowingly holds the key to Chance Medley, a code that KGB chief Kazin desperately wants to break.

Kazin, master manipulator, pits Povin against an unlikely adversary, Inna Karsovina, a complex and beautiful young woman torn between her rising career in the KGB and her role as a divorced mother.  Inna's interrogation of Povin, which forms the core of this suspenseful book, takes a turn that astounds them both, changing everything.  Meanwhile, an ally in the West schemes to free Povin.  And behind all is Kazin, quietly pulling the strings.

Nocturne for the General is more than a superb thriller; it is a deftly plotted novel about love, faith, and betrayal.
