KIRKUS REVIEW

Aboard the Trans-Siberian Express, no way as glamorous as the Shanghai even if Kremlin leader Yermakov is to be seized for ransom, this moderate thriller opposes Yermakov and mathematical brain Pavlov, part Jewish by blood and all Jewish by affiliation. Helped by associates the Prospector, the Planter and the Pedarest (sic -- whatever he may be). There's an ancillary plot dealing with a U.S. journalist not sure which way of life he will choose and a young woman who is smuggling out an anti-Soviet manuscript on microfilm. Consistently interesting but seldom exciting.
